Description

Legendary counterculture icon and beloved Grateful Dead guitarist and vocalist Jerry Garcia was also a graphic artist of considerable talent. After attending the San Francisco Art Institute as a young man, he began to focus on music, but his passion for visual art never dimmed and he continued to sketch throughout his life. Although Jerry was once quoted as saying, "I hope no one takes them too seriously," these unique visual improvisations started receiving attention when they were exhibited and sold in the late '¬?80s and early '¬?90s. They are now owned by several major public and private collections. J.GARCIA offers these wonderful drawings to Deadheads and art lovers alike, as Jerry'¬'s soul shines through in each charming landscape, each pleasant dreamscape, and each whimsically (and sometimes wickedly) insightful portrait.A collection of 40 pencil sketches, pen-and-ink drawings, and watercolor paintings by the legendary musician.With a new foreword by lifelong friend and artist Roberta Weir.Now available! Extremely limited stock of the original slipcased, hardcover issue of the first edition, signed by Jerry Garcia in 1992. (Price available on request; ISBN 0-89087-682-7)show more
