FROM CHUCK SPERRY
While working on my presentation for Trimarchi, the largest design conference of it’s kind in the Spanish speaking world. Steeped in the amazing psychedelic poster art of Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelley, Wes Wilson, Victor Moscoso, Rick Griffin – and having the original Mouse/Kelley 13th Floor Elevator poster framed and hanging on my drawing studio wall for twenty years – I made this as a very tongue-in-cheek parody of that poster. I liked that Gary Grimshaw (making a poster for the Grande Ballroom) and Mouse/Kelley (making a poster for the Avalon Ballroom) had coincidentally drawn from the same source photo in Life magazine. I felt it would be interesting to draw the syllogism into my own re-contextualization of the same source in the 21st Century. I altered the source image into a portrait of Shirley Manson, lead singer of Garbage.
