Football team recreates Pepper cover

I have seen a lot of SPLHCB parodies, but I think this one is my favorite.  I am an Arsenal fan personally, but this is pretty cool, and it seems that it is going to go to a good cause.

Spurs players past and present are featured on artwork

AN ARTWORK depicting Tottenham Hotspur’s finest in the style of a legendary Beatles album cover will be auctioned for a Haringey-based charity next month.Canvassing Spurs by James Burke is a pastiche of the cover for the band’s Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.It features greats past and present including Terry Venables, Paul Gascoigne and Gary Lineker and current manager Martin Jol.

The picture by Mr Burke, a creative director with acrylic canvas company acrylicize, was judged the best of invited contributions to a charity auction for Kith and Kids – a Tottenham-based charity for families with disabled children. Others invited to contribute works for the on-line auction include top Brit-artist Gavin Turk, the actor Jude Law, Cherie Blair, former topless model Linda Lusardi and the club’s players. Organisers hope the auction on http://www.tottenhamhotspur.com, which begins on Sunday, will raise thousands of pounds.
