When I think about it, I have been seeing the Dave Matthews Band since high school. I have seen them live more than any other live act, although I am almost surpassing this number with each Phish show I attend. I had been to about 60 DMB shows between 2000-2008, and I am excited to possibly see them one last time before they take their hiatus at the end of this year. In gearing up for possibly taking another shot at a DMB show, I have drawn this tribute print as a homage to one of the most influential bands of my past. A portion of the proceeds of this print will go to benefit the BAMA works foundation.
A full scale 18x24 Leroi Moore Tribute will follow these two print editions, with proceeds to benefit the Leroi Moore Fund.
Leroi Tribute will be released sometime in Late October/ Early Novemeber.
These DMB Prints Go on Sale Monday, October 4th 2010

Hey everyone, summer tour has drawn to a close. 14 shows in 7 different states (NY 3 different times). I met a bunch of new, great friends, as well as rekindled relationships with friends from tour that I havent seen in years. This was my first experience with lot art. In many ways, anything I do is a first, regarding this art process. I am virginal at best, when it comes to describing the feeling I get when I look at what I have done since March. This blogspot launched that month, and within the last 6 months I have been treated to over 100 orders, and countless emails offering support and positive feedback. I sincerely thank each and every one of you that have helped me get my feet wet, and the proverbial ball rolling. I am not stopping, nor am I planning on standing still at any moment. I have a few projects lined up and a couple things that are either finished or on the way to becoming complete. I just finished my first official gig poster, and the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter and brighter.
Jerry Garcia was born on August 1st 1942, I was born August 1st, 1982. I have always had the pleasure of sharing my birthday with Captain Trips, if I had to have a celebrity birthday buddy, I am glad to say it is Jerry, which is much better than Coolio, who is also born August 1st.
Unfortunately, after battling with drug addiction and diabetes, Jerry Garcia passed away August 9th, 1995 in a drug rehabilitation facility.
For this reason many fans and deadheads the World over celebrate the first week in August as "Jerry Garcia Week".
In celebration of Jerry Garcia Week 2010, I have made a special tribute print. Here are the details for this particular print release, this one is very different so try to follow:
