Imagine – John Lennon

Imagine - John Lennon (Pablo Stanley Art)

I finally colored this comic šŸ™‚

Disclaimer:

  • This is NOT an anti-religion/atheist-propaganda comic. The comic and the song (at least as I understand it) tries to communicate that no matter your faith, we should all share the world in peace… As silly as that sounds.
  • Yes, MLK, Gandhi and Marley were spiritual people. Read point one šŸ™‚
  • This is NOT an antisemitic comic. The Israeli soldier is breaking the cycle of war to play some football. Come on!
  • That is AnnaĀ Politkovskaya, an awesome Russian journalist, writer and activist.
  • Yes, John Lennon probably was a douche wife-beater, but still, “Imagine” transcends the unpleasant facts about its composer.

You can see the original comic in black and white + some colors here.

“Do You Realize”Ā is my favorite song by theĀ Flaming Lips. The beauty and simplicity of its lyrics bring me to tears, I can’t help it. The song reminds me of how little we’re compared to the universe, just floating in a giant ball of dust, but it also points out how meaningful is everything we do and how beautiful we are. It’s about opposites living in peace: tears and happiness; life and death.

I made this comic mixing the lyrics of ‘Do you realize’ and the idea of Yoshimi from Flaming Lips‘ album “Yoshimi battles the pink robots”. Yoshimi uses her black belt in Karate to defeat the evil-natured robots and try to save the love of her life, who was kidnapped by the pinkest robot of them all. In the process, she realizes how important is every decision; every move and jump she makes. She feels how the world is spinning around her and realizes that no matter how good she is or how bad she tries, all the people she loves someday will die.

Yesterday

This is one of my favorite songs by The Beatles. The comic is loosely based on stuff that happened to me some time ago. I know the end might seem a bit harsh, but in those moments, you start thinking that that’s the only way out. Fortunately, I overcame that situationĀ and looking at the yesterday reminds me that I should thrive for the tomorrow.
