Thank you to all the fine folks who joined us for Festival of Rock Posters at Hall of Flowers (San Francisco County Fair Building) this past Saturday, October 22, 2016 in Golden Gate Park. It was a grand time celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the psychedelic rock poster, and experiencing how this art form has remained relevant, especially in the digital age.
This year we saw record attendance, with our Artist Relief Trust posters by the legendary Stanley Mouse selling out within an hour of opening. This silkscreen poster is extra special because all proceeds from the sale go directly to benefit an artist in need. Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing pictures of your copy, signed by Mouse on social media.
We are already at work preparing for next year, hopefully with a confirmed date soon. Until then, please enjoy these pictures. (click to enlarge)

Well I'm on my way back to London, thanks to Marty @trpsorg and all the volunteers for putting on such a great event, and thanks to all the folks that picked up some of my work for making a super successful outing for me! I'humbled and honoured anyone would pick up my stuff when there is SO MUCH AMAZING work at hand. Here is the TRPS artist group shot, there are too many legendary names for one post to handle, but check my previous artist list post to who is all here. Thanks again everyone! Till next time.

Each show will have silent auctions.
