Fare Thee Well Print
This is a re-release of a poster that I created to commemorate the Grateful Dead's Fare Thee Well concerts that took place in Chicago this past summer on July 3, 4 & 5. The remaining "Core Four" of Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann & Mickey Hart were joined by Bruce Hornsby, Jeff Chimenti & Trey Anastasio. This event was something that I just had to produce a piece of artwork for. It made me feel like I was drawing in the margins of my high school and college notebooks again.
The original work is a pen & ink, watercolor and colored pencil illustration. It was imaged with the Better Light system at 248 megapixels. These are high quality giclee prints on beautiful archival paper with a 100 year display life printed on an Epson 9900. Certificates of material will be shipped with the print. These type of prints have outstanding color and clarity and are very delicate. Please use proper care when handling/framing, etc.
Prints will measure 17" x 27" and be made to order. Posters will be printed as orders are placed. Prints will be rolled carefully inside a plastic bag & shipped priority mail in a mailing tube.
This print run will be made to order. Orders will be periodically collected and shipped as printed. Please allow 3-4 weeks.
***PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT THE FIRST PRINTING RUN THAT I OFFERED IN JUNE/JULY 2015 AND AT THE CHICAGO SHOWS. DUE TO REPEATED INQUIRY, I AM PRODUCING ADDITIONAL PRINTS. THESE WILL NOT BE HAND-SIGNED AND NUMBERED (the print itself contains my signature and year), AS THAT WAS EXCLUSIVE TO THE INITIAL RUN. OTHERWISE, THIS IS THE EXACT SAME POSTER (quality, size, paper, etc.).
To be clear, this print is not officially affiliated with the concerts or the band. This is just a love letter from a fan.
Feel free to ask any questions.
