This poster was officially available through the Jerry Garcia Foundation in celebration of Jerry Garcia’s Birthday 2016.
I will be making my artist copies available only through my art shows and live appearances through the end of 2016.
My aim is to capture the young Jerry Garcia in the springtime of his life and in the full bloom of his youthful idealism gazing into his own future replete with possibilities. I wove a psychedelic paisley pattern throughout the design rendered in eight colors, including bright hues, hand-blended metallics and translucent glazes. My hope is to portray the young Jerry, who while participating in the Haight-Ashbury’s utopian experiment, helped to transform the world through optimism and good humor, light and music.
