This very popular blotter print was part of a collection of prints by Mark McCloud called the Dirty Dozen

I used to do it before even posters...but the whole rise and flood of vanity blotter art and bootleg reprints kinda turned me off to collecting....

The real collectible pieces are in the actual art that were distributed...this being one of those pieces...but it was probably reprinted at one time

I saw this one and the varient with white backgroud being circulated in the mid-to-late 1990s

Yeah, i collect the vintage signed blotters, like DDozen, MM, Alex Grey, Thom Lyttle blotters were always nice with the extra uncut space around them, and I've never seen one signed by Thom though, I mean just about anyone else, but RIP Thom; good work man. This has a 1st and second printings, I believe the ones that came from Key-Z.com but he wanted $400.00 for one just signed Kesey. That's another reason why I don't collect blotters anymore other than vintage/signed ones as of all the lack of creativity that the old ones bring. They are not S/N'ed (a lot of them) and a first Mad Hatter from MM's Dirty Dozen shouldn't be over $100.00, $120 for unexperienced collectors, like the various colors of the colored Alice in Wonderland variant colors; The Red is the Hardest to find and i heard at one time on tour the reds were 250mics, a 4 block was 1,000mics. I've been wrong before, but I believe that is accurate 8)

I'm guessing there are closer to 10 printings than two. The mad hatters with the white space below for signatures are reprints too....that's why the white space is there for sigs.

I would not trust anything Zane Kesey says (just my opinion)...

Agreed, Never Trust A Prankster...a real one, he's been kind to my family, but Neal@tTheWheel was a driver, John Swan, Intrepid Traveler, Mike H, Slime Queen, Babbs boys, MtnGirl and Ken Babbs, original pranksters, the Grateful Dead were pranksters, and they used to follow us around. Want to hear a $1 joke paul? Why was Jerry always hiding? A: Because everywhere he went everyone was always peaking. (I don't quit get it, but if you need gas money I give it to you, and if you know any roadrunners anyone pass it one, it's going to be international soon, or end up on Zane's tshirts lol

The art on this print is by the recently deceased "Low Brow" artist "The Pizz"... He was a Southern-California based tiki and surf artist who took his life in 2017.

Mark McCloud purchased the original and commissioned the blotter. The Pizz also did the art for the Alfred E. Pluribus Newman blotter that's part of McCloud's "Dirty Dozen."
