this stuff is really classic acid art stuff. this is essentially where all those psych artists like griffin and the like (not mouse or moscosso) started off. in facrt the very first psych poster looked a lot like this (by george hunter).
basically, it's this sort of free scrawll style that created rock posters as we know them today. strange, huh?
we should be kind to this stuff. and you have to admit they make a REALLY INTERESTING texture when placed all together like this.
Heh, one doesn't choose to be a psychedelic artist, it chooses YOU. An interesting area of research would be to find the true psych artists of today, not "neo" guys ripping off the past but people working in true new styles that are visually identifiable as influenced by LSD. Not sure if anyone even does acid anymore. I hear the kids are really into X these days. What's "X art"? Is there any? Techno club flyers? I have a book of that stuff.
gerg was this old stupid stoned hippie dude (with short hair and a big belly) who wanted to be a 'psychedelic artist'. he would call me up and 'discuss' how do do art. basically he would ask for advice and argue with everything i said (like basic technology on how to get things printed). he apparently just wanted me to extoll his genius, not give him tips on how to actually print his drawings.
anyway, he was in interstellar observatory and kuli loach. really baaaad bands. terrible.
these are his posters for his own bands.
