Beatlesobit: Heinz Edelmann

Heinz Edelmann, the man who created the Pepperland sequence for Yellow Submarine, has died at the age of 75.

The New York Times obituary notes that his work on the Beatles movie obscured his more interesting and definitive work, before filling his obituary with anecdotes about his work on the Beatles movie.

It does reveal that one of the influences on his work for the film was Bob Godfrey, thereby taking us from Henry's Cat to John Lennon in one leap.
