Grateful Dead Artist Variants: Wave Three, and Some Heavy News.

by ncwinters on September 17, 2018

Final Wave of my Grateful Dead artist copies sale, and some heavy news.

It’s been a rough week, with the recent passing of our cat Bailey. Even though he was an indoor cat, he can’t couldn’t help but keep getting outside. This time he almost fought off an attack from a coyote, and while my wife managed to hear the scuffle and valiantly bolted after them, scaring the coyote enough to drop the cat, it was too late, and we had to euthanize. He was a solid member of the family and at 17 years old, with us from the beginning. It’s going to take some time for the hole in our hearts to heal. We’ll miss you terribly, Bay.


In lighter news, Wave Three of the Grateful Dead posters features one single variant: Blue Mirri foil. Yes, there was speculation that a blue foil was coming, and the rumors were true. A straightforward release: when I was designing the posters I knew I was going to feature a red and blue foil to completely round out the red/blue color scheme of the print. Like everything else in the entire run, I am blown away by the quality, color, and registration skill utilized by Ben and the rest of the crew at Burlesque. This print wouldn’t be what it is without their hard work and artistic dedication and integrity.

Wave Three’s blue mirri foil drop will be at 9AM PDT sharp this coming Wednesday, September 19. Here’s a handy link about exact time/time zones. Bypassing the newsletter exclusivity this month for personal emotional ease. Please note that again, there will be a STRICT limit of only one poster per order/household. Orders of multiple prints will be cancelled. This is to try and combat some of the aftermarket aggressive purchases/resales that have been going on. I appreciate the understanding. 

On to the print! Love you all!
