 ITEM DESCRIPTION

 Collection of (7) assorted pieces of 1989-90 Rick Griffin HAND-DRAWN ORIGINAL ART (concept drawings/preliminary) mixed-media (pencil, ink, acrylic paint) sketches done for the 25th Anniversary of the Grateful Dead.

 Unsigned preliminary/mechanical drawings (on sketchpad vellum, tracing paper and clear plastic film) originally came directly from the Rick Griffin estate in the early 1990's; this project was put together in a number of different versions, Rick would submit a selection of them to the Dead for approval. They wound up using several of Rick's designs for t-shirts, the tour program and a few posters. 1990 was a big year for both Rick and the G.D.

 As these are all ORIGINAL pieces directly from the artist's studio, a letter grade is essentially irrelevant... however, the pieces are all in varying conditons; the tracing paper pieces all have hand-torn/irregular edges/edge tears, etc.. and there are a number of handling creases and surface smudges on just about all of them, but it's pretty interesting-looking.

 Cool little collection of original Griffin Grateful Dead preliminaries.
