The Jerry Garcia Estate recently released a new live album of recordings, Garcia Live vol. 6, taken from a concert in 1973 (Lion’s Share – San Anselmo, CA) with Merl Saunders and to celebrate asked me to create artwork for a poster & T-shirt bundle.
I’m happy to say the posters all SOLD OUT and I will be making my Artist copies of the print available this Friday, JULY 22th @ 11AM (PST)..
The poster is a 5-color print with a total run of 500 prints. I will be releasing a smaller run of about 50 Signed/AP (Artist Prints).
I am finally back from vacation and have 2 new foils to release to you, the masses. First up is the WIDESPREAD PANIC – Rogers, Arkansas print from a couple weeks ago. I will have a very limited run of 12 of each kind of paper (Rainbow, Lava & Sparkle) all signed/numbered. These are gorgeous….
Next up I have the Uber-patriotic STRING CHEESE INCIDENT print from the Asheville/Atlanta shows during the 4th of July. Once again,.. the print run is super small. About 14… all signed/numbered. Both prints are releasing next week on this site, MONDAY JULY 18 @ 11AM (PST)…
The String Cheese Incident are hitting up Asheville, NC & Atlanta, GA for this years big 4th of July bash. 4 Nights spread throughout 2 cities ending outdoors at the beautiful Chastain Park Amphitheater. Hula hoops, fireworks, blue ridge mountains & warm sweaty, sweaty nights.. sound like a good time.
Since the shows were so close to each other and we wanted to carry over the Patriotic fever of the holiday, both shows were combined for one poster. I knew I wanted to have something big & colorful exploding in the sky, surrounded by fireworks and worked my way through a couple obvious choices… an Atlanta Hawk… a fiery rising Phoenix… but figured why not go classic Eagle. From there the concept went through a number of variations. In the end I wanted to emphasize color, not overdue the “AMEERIKAA” & over the top patriotism of the piece and give the whole thing a bit more of a cosmic vibe.
The poster is 18′ x 24′, 6-colors and has a print run of 425…. printed by the rad folks at Good Thoughts (Boulder, CO). I will have a run of about 30 Artist Edition prints (signed/AP) available on Monday, July 6th (PST) @ 11AM (PST).
Those interested in participating in THE COLORING NOOK, B&W’s are available.
