The idea here is to present a visual biography featuring each one of the amazing Beatles.

The postmaks will be from Liverpool and London, the old paper backgrounds will be hand written Beatles lyrics.

Other tangable items included with the archive photos will be Beatles buttons, concert tickets and posters, newspaper clippings, etc., basically, any other cool ephemeral items we can find that help reinforce the individual persoalities of the Fab 4.

And dig this:

HMK Bio Soul Doubt

Born in 1961, H. Michael Karshis, (the H is for Henry) lives and works as an artist and graphic designer in San Antonio, Texas. Primarily working with collaged rescued ephemera, found objects and large-scale photography, Karshis’s oeuvre includes prints and audio experimentation. His work manipulates sardonic hypepbolic word play and is fueled by his passion for typography, scientific illustrations, maps and diagrams exploring their ritualistic forms of use in pop cuture and packaging. His work was once described as choriographed chaos and is often charged with double entendres while using visual metaphors as both equal parts propaganda and pun. Each hanging piece comes complete with it’s own soundtrack, (also known as HMK Mystery Streams, AKA Irregular Frequency) juxtaposing hand selected samples of sound and audio with the imagery.

MYTHS (Michael):


Myth: Atkins force-feeds you bacon and cheese.


This is the new Atkins – a focus on lean protein, good fats, vegetable, whole grains and yes, even fruit. You can eat this way with your family, at work, in a restaurant. Everywhere. And you can lose up to 15 pounds in the first two weeks. That’s no myth. That’s sweet sexy science.


Atkins is the only major diet that lets us set your goals, plan your meals, count your carbs and succeed – absolutely free. Visit to get started now.
The top headline should say "Rock In the New Year at Redbone!"

Undearneath that, it should say "Did you make a New Years resolution to learn to play an instrument? T Street Music Instruction, inside Redbone Guitar Boutique, offers lessons in Guitar, Bass, Piano/Keyboard, and Drums. Our instructors teach at any level, whether you're a beginner, professional, or anywhere in between. Please contact us for more details, regarding Pricing, Scheduling a Lesson, Discounts, or any other questions."

Below that, I want to say, "Redbone Guitar Boutique also offers a wide selection of beginner instruments at a reasonable price. Whether it be picks, a strap, or just strings, we have everything you'll ever need to Rock In the New Year!"
At the bottom, if there is room, we can still keep GUITARS! GUITARS! GUITARS!

Is that still too many words? Send me a copy of what it'll look like with the words condensed. if it looks too bad, then I'll take take even MORE words out. Thanks!
