Frankenchrist (Giger's Landscape #XX)

So, I was digging around through a bunch of posters and color separations that my dad did back in the 70's and 80's (He was a lithographer/printer in SF). One item of note was a color separation for the insert in the Dead Kennedy's Frankenchrist album. You know the one, Giger's Landscape #XX(AKA Pen...

Re: BG-105 Hendrix Experience SF 68 Griffin

1 yellow. As far as what for and how many of the final poster(s) were made is still a mystery. The shop owner asked me if the poster had who the poster was printed for in the lower left. I told him there wasn't anything there. He was surprised and said that the proof must have been made before they...

Re: BG-105 Hendrix Experience SF 68 Griffin

Ok, sorry for all the posts, but I feel like there may be a break in the case. I was able to get a larger picture of the postcard and did a stare and compare and think that the two definitely are related somehow. http://springett.net/posters/compare.jpg 1. Position of 105 in relation to "Ticket" 2. ...

Re: BG-105 Hendrix Experience SF 68 Griffin

Hi, been a while. I finally got a hold of the owner of the shop(Gregory & Falk) that printed the yellow bg105 and got a little more information on the poster, not a lot though. Apparently a customer(he couldn't remember the customer name) had commissioned a poster to be made and on the day that the...

Re: Rick Griffin Aoxomoxoa

Some Zap originals .... The cover artwork sold for a lot ... Victor Moscoso sold it for a reported $80,000 in February 2007. Following is the written word by Victor's son, Justo, from the auction of this piece. This is an original piece of artwork from the late Rick Griffin. Rick was one of the "Bi...

Re: Rick Griffin appreciation & information

Has anyone seen a version of the BG-105 with a copywrite/ticket line like this?

Might help in determining what the final was

Curious, who is Jay? I believe the Yellow BG-105 was a one off, so unlikely there is a 2nd.

Re: Rick Griffin appreciation & information

cool, thanks for that reply. So this was made when the large SS-4 silkscreen version was made in 1989? Well at first I thought maybe so, but looking at the Copywrite/Tickets line it looks as thought ss-4's don't have that. I thought my father said that the large one they were printing for was going...

Re: Rick Griffin appreciation & information

The Yellow BG-105 was printed out of a shop in SF called Gregory & Falk. My father was a color stripper in that shop and kept this Chromalin Proof. I don't remember much of the why it was yellow. A co-worker of his who is a friend of mine, seems to recollect that they were short on the red and just ...

It just occurred to me, there's not a damn thing innocent about the people in these pics. It was all about the thrill of exhibition. Go ahead and print them up and let us see them.
I was trying to protect you. :twisted:
