John and Yoko

39 years ago this month (1971), John Lennon and Yoko Ono moved to New York City.

Here is a beautiful illustrative portrait of them by Burt Silverman, illustrative portraitist extraordinaire.

I love Silverman's work. Somehow, I can spot it instantly, even if it's part of a cover in a stack of Time magazines in a teevee ad for Time subscriptions. I used to clip his art everywhere I could find it. The cover of Jethro Tull's Aqualung is by him!
