I cant put my finger on it but really not a fan this one.
Obviously art is subjective and this is my opinion, but to me the whole thing seems basic. I fell in love with 'Summer' and 'Fall', but this one just feels so 'simple' compared to what it could have been (a highly detailed, grizzled Garcia, better representing his later years.) I understand wanting to be 'optimistic/hopeful' but I feel like this choice goes against the story told by the previous in this series, and making him look more 'Youthful' than in Fall (2 wrinkles as opposed to 3) is a bizarre choice, and make this chronologically confusing if you were to display these alongside each other.

Also really confused by the decision to make of 1/2 the print being the matte black t-shirt. Especially when Chuck's signature swirls/embellishments would have looked great on black.
I feel like this will be referred to at trade shows as 'black t-shirt Jerry' in no time.

" I wove a psychedelic paisley pattern throughout the design - and running through the iconic black t-shirt area as a matte and glaze black effect - rendered in nine colors, including bright hues, hand-blended metallics and translucent glazes."

The shirt and print will obviously look a lot better in person than in the jpg.

I might be misunderstanding, but I think that all those other colors/designs are for the 'other parts' of the print. The t-shirt is still just a 'matte and glaze black effect', right? I agree this will look better in person but just seems like a weird decision, that's all.

Is Sperry loosing it ?
On the small thumbnail image, it looks like there is no mouth ? What no proofing of poster ?
Teeth are grey and weird lips. Worst print ever , sorry, but Jerry deserves better

There is a pattern through the black shirt that isn’t visible in the mockup. The piece looks better in person but isn’t my favorite from the set.
