Deadhead Art / by Nip Rogers

I'm on the other side of the world and very much engrossed in life where I am, but every now and again I get a reminder of what life back home is like.  Like the time my buddy Ed from the States wrote to me about this idea he was excited about…he is a huge Grateful Dead fan. Ed asked if I wanted to be involved with trying to get some tickets for the 50th Fare Thee Well Dead concert. Heck yeah! It's the Deads! And then we talked ideas.  A couple of days later, I emailed him this sketch. Loved it. Now we’re holding our breaths, waiting for the big moment.

Then I did a mockup for Eddy to see what it would or 'should' look like when printed.

This got such great feedback from my peeps on facebook so I decided to make the artwork available for collector's item, print on paper or canvas and on a mug - all of which you can buy from my online shop. The 'buttons' all the way to the end of this article will take you to my shop when you click on them.
