Re: What is your latest proud print acquisition?

OG Canvas .jpg OG I found wandering around a rummage store in nowhere southern Georgia. Couldn't leave without it. Can't make out the artist but don't really care. It's just weird enough and fits nicely with the Welker Levitator, same vibe oddly enough and it looks like the same old wise man. One s...

Original artwork from Jim Franklin's Armadillo Comics #1 by Jim Franklin from 1971. My first piece of original art and I'm a huge Jim Franklin fan.

Re: Show Us Your Psychedelic Art

I seem to recall reading years ago that a few enterprising folks were able to salvage beaucoup AWHQ posters which were tossed into a dumpster when the place closed down. Would be nice to hear from someone in the know, as the fog gets thicker over the expanse of time. Unfortunately, none in the coll...

Re: Show Us Your Psychedelic Art

Not strictly psychedelic, but I've been tracking down a lot of psychedelic / country / etc. posters from the Austin music scene in the late 60s and through the 70s (a couple into the 80s). Here's what I've been able to track down since maybe September. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/593/31931448980_0...
