"The ex-Beatle is sitting on his windowsill at The Dakota on Central Park West, where he lived and where he was gunned down in 1980. His shape here is not that different from the skyscrapers in the skyline behind him, super-vertical. This drawing gets across that playful, mischievous, professorial quality he had." HOL/335.
