BG105 "The Flying Eyeball" Rick Griffin
The Fillmore Poster Company is to hold an auction of psychedelic posters on the 4th. November 2010, including this very rare, near mint, proof sheet BG105 "The Flying Eyeball" by Rick Griffin. Used to promote a series of Bill Graham concerts held at Winterland and the Fillmore Auditorium on February 1-4, 1968, the performers on the bill included Jimi Hendrix, Albert King and John Mayall and The Bluesbreakers.
Other artists in the auction include Victor Morsoco, Wes Wilson and Bonnie MacLean with some fantastic early examples of both Bill Graham and Chet Helme's Family Dog Productions posters as well as other from the Neon Rose and Fillmore East.
The Fillmore Poster Company has a huge collection of original pschedelic posters and handbills and their website is well worth a look at for lovers of acid based art and typograhy.
With thanks to Albert Hoffman without whom, none of this would have been possible.
