motownjcSend motownjc a message :   oh yeah, this is the art from the upcoming reprint. it looks pretty much the same as the original, but grimshaw had to fix things he always hated about the original printing.
he complains as bitterly about these print jobs from the 60s as he would if the poster was finished yesterday. it's amazing.
it's going to be reprinted on the some fancy ass paper by the firehouse.

motownjcSend motownjc a message :   this was the cover from december 6, 1954 life mag. according to mouse and grimshaw it was purely coincidental that they both used the same image within a couple of weeks of each other.
seeing as how there was no real coverage of the hippie scene and psychedelic posters in the mainstream media until the January 1967 'human be-in' in golden gate park, it would have been relatively hard for anyone to know about mouses work on the west coast within the time frame that it happened.
life magazine was/is a treasure trove for poster artists, and also inspired grimshaws "seagull" poster, his first poster, which was the grande ballrooms first poster also featuring the mighty MC5, Detroits version of the SONICS.
the prime movers featured another michigan native, front man michael erlewine, known for founding

B-DROIDSend B-DROID a message :   Art is correct, FD28. Its blue and orange. They had a copy of it at the McMenaminns we used to eat at. The photo is actually a pilot getting facial mapped from LIFE magazine.   2008-03-10 12:23:50

whippingtomSend whippingtom a message :   Mouse/kelley used it for a 13th Floor elevator poster in 66 but the image itself is from a 50's Life cover.   2008-03-10 12:23:12
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   isn't this a rip of the old wes wilson/avalon ballroom poster? i can remember a poster from then that looks exactly like this (except it's blue).
it's interesting to note that even the early pioneers of rock gigposterdom copied the shit out of each other. purity is for dorks.
