When a fellow artist is in need of help, the responsibility of all artists and art lovers who can help, to pitch in without question to help.
Alan Forbes was attacked in the Haight Street area of San Francisco this past October. The attacker left Alan with a badly fractured skull. He is making a swift and full recovery. Alan Forbes is an incredible talent, and all-around righteous guy. But there are sizable medical expenses that need to be taken care of, and that’s where you come in. I’m offering one Widespread Panic Madison Square Garden Artist Proof, and will immediately send all the proceeds to Alan Forbe’s benefit fund.

I’m stoked to announce that Acid King is going to play with Ufomammut at the Dark Nouveau art show at Varnish Fine Art on Saturday, October 24, 2009. Details of the show and advance ticket sales information here.
Dave Hunter made this sweet poster at Hangar 18 for the event (above).
Cool thing for me about Acid King playing this show – is that the very first poster Ron Donovan and I collaborated on was for Acid King and Fear at the Trocadero. So it’s all in the family.
Check Ron and my Acid King poster below. And in case you are wondering – this poster is waaaay sold out – so don’t ask.
Malleus, Alan Forbes and Firehouse
893 Folsom Street in San Francisco
MALLEUS, the artist collective of Urlo, Poia and Lu, the remarkable poster design team from Italy, will be unveiling their new works and limited art prints on Saturday, October 10 at ARTROCK GALLERY in San Francisco.
Alan Forbes and Chuck Sperry / Ron Donovan of the Firehouse will exhibit with MALLEUS – each presenting art prints specifically designed for the event.
In addition there will be a live print demonstration, so you will have an opportunity to acquire an exclusive art print made for you right before your very eyes.
The event is a celebration of DARK NOUVEAU, a return to the roots of poster creation.
DARK NOUVEAU evokes equally the fin de siécle style of Toulouse-Lautrec and 1960’s San Francisco Psychedelia – and operates here as a manifesto of reinvention and revision – aimed at connecting to the poster movement of the Decadent Period to the Belle Epoque and folding it into the Psychedelic Period to the present modern global silkscreen movement.
DARK NOUVEAU opens at 7pm – Saturday, October 10 at ARTROCK GALLERY – 893 Folsom Street in San Francisco.
