All You Need is Love



Where does inspiration come from? If you're anything like Leslie Blackford, it comes from everything you see and everything you do. Leslie (along with myself and Judy Belcher) had the good fortune to see Cirque du Soleil's The Beatles LOVE show while we were in Las Vegas last year. What a stunning tribute to the greatest band in the history of music and what a treasure trove of inspiration. The costumes and characters are simply incredible! Leslie's "Walrus and Eggman" is the first in what I hope will be a whole series of sculptures inspired by the show.

It's cold here in West Virginia today so I'm going to pretend I'm sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun to come. If you'd like to join me, click here. Coo coo ca choo!

I, too, saw Beatles Love in Vegas last January. It was fantastic, as is this piece by Leslie Blackford.

So glad you got the opportunity to enjoy it too, NJ. I was incredibly excited by the whole thing and I was thrilled to see Leslie take the inspiration and make her magic.

OMG! I saw LOVE when at Clay Carnival this last November. I am so glad that Leslie is doing a series inspired by it. If I was a better sculpter I would try....Love the idea and love her work.
