A close up shot of the back of Lennon's Fender Vibrolux , part of a much larger scene inside studio #2 and Paul's Casino leaning on his Vox 730 sitting in the same scene - different camera angles. Both part of a 24'' x 48'' panoramic print on Kodak paper where the client choose his own 1965 gear set up with a few added pieces of vintage gear.
Rickenceiling 1965 pt. 2. The finished render with a vintage Polaroid 600 treatment.
Imagine being able to go back in time to your favorite Beatles era and walk around the studio taking photographs of all the gear from any angle. Ill be posting an order form on my website where you can do just that.
Pre-order 4" x 5" vintage Polaroid-style photographs - 12 and 24 exposures.
Pre-orders are free of charge and without obligation.
Using an old site plan with elevation data the wall, pool, trees and shrubs are placed accordingly. The wall and pool are really close but I had to eye the height of the trees with help from a few photos of the day. The exterior wraps around out of eye site from views right up against the sliding door.
Here's another installment of Lennon's sunroom in the form of a 360 degree panoramic virtual tour, viewable in most browsers as Flash and HTML 5 on your Apple device. Ill be adding several more camera views in the coming weeks.
18" x 24" print on high quality 100lb gloss stock. The "Washington Coliseum Drum Riser " took about 12 months to complete and is acompletely computer generated photo-realistic recreation of Ringo's drum platform as it appeared after the first Beatles concert appearance at the
Washington Coliseum on February 11, 1964. "The Beatles" logo used in this rendering is a high resolution digital photograph of THE ACTUAL 20" Remo Weatherking bass drum head Ringo used on his Ludwig kit on The Beatles first appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show and and their first US concert at the Washington Coliseum 2 days later on February 11 1964.
So highly detailed that you can read all the text present in the scene such as the set list and the
words "bass drum" on the 20" Remo drum head.
Included in this rendering is the actual drumhead used by Ringo Starr
(owned by Russ Lease, President of Beatlesuits.com) and the Washington concert set list handwritten by John Lennon (owned by Beatles author and collector Mark Naboshek).
Ringo Starr's Ludwig kit on the Ed Sullivan set, February 9, 1964. 4 ft x 4 ft WALL MURAL. REMOVABLE - REUSABLE. The drums are printed to ACTUAL SCALE on heavy duty vinyl features vibrant colors with a matte finish for reduced glare.
Just like the 18" x 24" "Ringo's Drum Riser" poster above, I used the same high resolution photograph of the ACTUAL 20" REMO WEATHERKING bass drum head Ringo used on his Ludwig kit on the Beatles first three appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show and their first US concert at the Washington DC Coliseum on February 11 1964. I can print any custom size on Premium Photo paper or wall mural material.
Since I've received a lot of e-mail about Paul's Pepsi radio I thought I might as well post some of the more interesting objects for fun in between posting complete scenes so here's a Kellogg's Corn Flakes box render for a Kenwood sunroom.
Although the front is a 1967 U.K. version, I created the completed texture from a few different vintage cereal boxes so it's not entirely accurate how the actual box would have looked like.
If anyone happens to have a vintage Lennon spec Kellogg's Corn Flakes box lying around please drop me a line.
Born of John Lennon's post-touring retreat into suburban daydreaming, Good Morning Good Morning was inspired by a Kellogg's commercial he heard while working with the television playing in the background.Read more...

Some Beatles fans are content to collect their music, while others bid on memorabilia, attend conventions or make pilgrimages to Liverpool and London. Then there’s Chris Sileo, who applies his many years of experience as a broadcast designer (virtual sets, motion graphics, 3D logos, news graphics) to reproducing locations and objects related to the Beatles.
In this scene, part of George Harrison’s childhood home is reproduced. Below is John Lennon’s Sunroom, where he spent much of his leisure time. Both scenes are accurately reproduced to the smallest detail.
