Due to my preparations for my solo show at Spoke Art Gallery – opening on November 29, 2014 (I will be making very limited wood panel art editions for Spoke) -
I will be waiting to make a very limited online release of both Iowa posters and their variants on December 1, 2014 at a random time.

IOWA-FLUO
Widespread Panic asked me to do a pair of posters for their Fall Tour 2014, and I wanted to do something different. I love the challenge of doing two, or three, or four related posters. The prospect of doing two posters that relate to each other is an exciting creative challenge. For fans of Widespread Panic posters I’ve become well-known for my series of long locked, flower laden “Ladies” for the band. This diptych of posters for Widespread Panic’s 2014 Fall Tour gigs in Cedar Rapids and Ames, Iowa concentrates on the flowers — no lady.
-
These posters are a gift to the band, like the flowers thoughtful folks bring to performers after the show, a thank you for rocking the house down to the ground — or like the flowers thrown on stage, gathered up and arranged in a pitcher like a beautiful memory. I hope I’m expressing the feeling of a Widespread Panic night in 9 bright psychedelic colors — some fluorescent eye-fry and some shimmering metallic. Flowers have long been a classic subject for the artist. I am seeking to create a pop poster that hides all the information in the subject image of the poster itself.

TRPS-Posters

I spent this Friday before TRPS Festival of Flowers printing a fine detail (adding the historically accurate support bands) on a reprint of “The Beatles 1966 Candlestick” poster designed by rock poster legend, the great Wes Wilson (a free labor of love for my hero). Make sure to visit Wes Wilson and ask about his newest offering! Helping make this the best show in the country for rock poster enthusiasts, sometimes means you have to pitch in and help your fellow artists, and helping Wes with his Beatles poster was just the right thing to do, and really cool! (even a small part of the overall piece).

I’m bringing many specialties and rarities. (Can you pick out some cool stuff in the picture above?) In addition to the newest titles, I’m making many rare test prints and black and white tests of most of my newest posters available tomorrow. It is always my great pleasure to welcome everyone to hometown, San Francisco, for the biggest poster show of the year!

Also, to add to the unreleased Widespread Panic variant additions I mentioned in my blog post earlier this week – I am offering two unreleased variant editions from my Dave Matthews Band, Greek Theatre.

These will only be offered exclusively at TRPS on Saturday, October 25, 2014.

San Francisco’s annual Fall Clas­sic, the TRPS Fes­ti­val of Rock Posters is set to go for Sat­ur­day Octo­ber 25th, 2014 at the San Fran­cisco County Fair Build­ing (aka Hall of Flow­ers) in beau­ti­ful Golden Gate Park.

Fea­tur­ing rock poster artists and deal­ers from around the coun­try, this is the biggest rock poster event of its kind any­where. Those of you who have attended this show in the past know that this is the one not to miss. We bring in the best of the best, and you’ll find every­thing from vin­tage psy­che­delic trea­sures to the best of the mod­ern silkscreen move­ment. This year’s ver­sion promises to offer another stel­lar lineup.

The loca­tion is at the cor­ner of Ninth and Lin­coln on the South edge of the Park, not far from the Haight, the DeY­oung Museum, and the Acad­emy of Sci­ences. There are plenty of great restau­rants close by, too. Make it a week­end and bring the fam­ily to enjoy the great weather, an awe­some poster event, and every­thing else San Fran­cisco has to offer.
