Yellow Submarine art direction and character design by Heinz Edelmann. No dedicated website, unfortunately. XTC (among others) swiped the style for the sleeve of their excellent 1989 album, Oranges & Lemons.

Update: Edelmann is ambivalent about being known as the Yellow Submarine designer but he talked to Baltimore’s 21st Century Radio about working on the film here. And the same site has a look at the film’s production process.

    They wanted to use Hey Bulldog in the movie Yellow Submarine, but it didn’t make the cut. When the film was re-released in 1999, the scene with this was included.

    Hey Bulldog is is big favourite of mine. Lennon doing his snarly rock’n'roll thing with a great piano groove.
