An original 1959 sketch of John Lennon by fellow student Helen Anderson. Copyright Helen Anderson. All rights reserved.


As a student at Liverpool College of Art, I took my work very seriously. Unlike some students, including John Lennon, who mostly horsed about, making people laugh.

In this clip from the new film Looking For Lennon, I describe John in all his teenage glory right down to the greased-back Teddy Boy hair, glasses of John LennonBuddy Holly … and zits. I also share a couple of sketches I did of John in 1959.

Looking for Lennon clip is reproduced by kind permission of Evolutionary Films; you can download the film from iTunes, Amazon or Google Playin the UK and soon, I hope, the world.
