    Yellow Submarine (United Artists, 1968). Hand Painted Mock-Up of Alternate Version of "Yellow Submarine" One Sheet (16" X 21").. A mock-up is a scaled or full-sized model of the planned poster. The size, color, type style and other graphic aspects are indicated in the poster. This is a one of a kind mock-up artwork created in the developmental stage of creating the original artwork for the 1968 USA movie poster for "Yellow Submarine." It was created by the application of partially hand-drawn pencil and ink drawings, in combination with photocopied artwork, and then gluing these drawings on another larger piece of illustration board. This artwork -- or Maquette -- is probably the earliest known concept drawing of the "Yellow Submarine" One Sheet. The basic design of the pictures is the only quality recognizable from any released version of the artwork for this classic film poster released in 1968. It is partly dominated by an image of the Maharishi Yogi that the Beatles were following. This artwork was created in 1968 at United Artists Publicity Department, and then discarded after use. Pictured on page 187 of "The Beatles Memorabilia Price Guide, 2nd Edition" by Jeff Augsburger, Marty Eck and Rick Rann, published 1993. Approximately size 16" X 21".
