As the story goes, Lennon was taking a break from the stage and happened to be flipping through a magazine about UFOs when he met a man who was also interested in the subject. The two kept in touch, sending each other letters, drawings and magazines for the rest of the musician’s short life.
Fans will notice that although these drawings are more like doodles, Lennon attended art school before his Beatles fame.

In it, Cynthia is pictured with a UFO hovering over her head in a sketch that dates back to the late ’50s/early ’60s era, some time before the two divorced in 1968.
