From The Artist:
It is an Honor and Pleasure to illustrate “Black Muddy River” as a screen printed poster. "Black Muddy River” was one of Jerry Garcia's last songs performed in Chicago on July 9th, 1995 leaving a handprint on all our hearts forever.
I chose to use 8 colors with the gold foil paper also serving as a 9th color. Included in the 8 colors is a decorative underprinted border of roses and wagon wheels printed black on black — simplistic yet striking. This technique and imagery is in ways is a visual lament I was inspired as a tribute to the soulfulness of the performance.
Black muddy river, deep and wide pouring through Jerry's hands and guitar, ascending for us all. Transcending as spirit, angelic and loving.
With Grateful Regards- R. Biffle
