Lot 7022: Two original sketches, both done by an admirer who has signed both of the works as well as adding the names of each subject, on individual off-white 9 x 12 sheets of sketch paper. One, a pencil sketch of Lennon sporting long hair and his trademark round glasses, signed in person vertically in blue ballpoint, "John Lennon," adding a quick self-caricature under his signature. A pencil notation on the reverse, presumably by the artist, states that Lennon's signature was obtained at the "Carlyle Hotel, Sgt. Pepper Premiere Night, 11-17-74." Interestingly, the collector noted that Lennon said "you sketched me, I'll sketch for you."; the other, a pencil and ink sketch of a bearded McCartney, signed in person in black ballpoint. The McCartney signature was obtained on November 23, 1974, at the Stanhope Hotel in New York City. In fine condition. Accompanied by a color candid of McCartney taken at the time of signing, and a color candid of Lennon taken on April 8, 1975.
