Paul McCartney Doodle Sells For $5.6K

Some sketches done by Paul McCartney in the late 1950s, while he was a student at the Liverpool Institute High School for Boys, have sold at auction.

The doodles, which sold for about $5,600, feature multiple faces with different expressions and are rendered in pencil. The sheet of paper is 12.5" x 8" and in good condition, with the exception of a small tear in the bottom right hand corner.

In addition to his musical interests, Macca has had some success in the art world. In an interview with the Daily Mail, he says he views both as expressive outlets:

"What I find is that I do it when I am inspired, and that's how I can combine it with music. Some days the inspiration is a musical one and other days it has got to be painting."
