Pop Artist Gets Down On Get Back

by Mat Dirjish

Pop artist Tom Foolery honors The Beatles with his “Get Back” posters as a prelude to Peter Jackson’s six-hour “Get Back” documentary, which airs on the Disney channel this coming Thursday, Thanksgiving, November 25, 2021. Tom Foolery, partnering with Genius Music Books, is launching a line of posters and apparel commemorating the global release of the Beatles documentary.

The line consists of three posters and two shirt designs that reflect The Beatles’ particular pop culture aesthetic. Tom’s choice of imagery depicts the beginning and end of the band’s domination of the culture of the 1960s, 1970s, and beyond.

Artist Tom Foolery’s Meet the Gear poster commemorates the Beatles’ first album, Meet the Beatles.

Tom Foolery mentored under the tutelage of Alan Aldridge, the Beatles’ art director and author of “The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics.” Channeling Aldridge’s style, he depicts the instruments the Fab Four used on the London rooftop on January 30, 1969. Billy Preston, American R&B artist, noted as a fifth member of the group, played keyboards for the group’s last live performance. The graphic shows Preston’s electric piano, George Harrison’s rosewood Telecaster guitar, Paul McCartney’s left-handed Hofner bass, John Lennons Epiphone guitar, and Ringo Starr’s Ludwig snare drum.

The two designs, Meet the Gear! and Get Back, are available as both posters and t-shirts. The 12×18 inch posters are high-quality digital prints on 190gsm/130lb acid-free silk stock, suitable for framing. The t-shirts are 100% cotton and washer-safe. For more details and/or to purchase any of these items, which I must say reasonably priced, visit Genius Music Books.
