Lot 2034

Details: This iconic concert poster for Vanilla Fudge and the Charles Lloyd Quartet at the Avalon Ballroom in 967 was designed by Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley with imagery taken from classic Art Nouveau designs.

The ticket outlets line in black at the bottom is indicative of a first printing (the second printing features a green line). Printed on uncoated index stock and is framed to approx. 17"x23".

Born in Detroit, Stanley Miller became known as "Mouse" after illustrating countless notebooks with his signature rodent sketch. Miller found an outlet for his creativity in pin-striping cars and airbrushing hot rod designs on posters and T-shirts. Mouse migrated to San Francisco in 1964, where he first met the artists associated with Family Dog, the organization producing dance concerts at the Avalon Ballroom. With collaborator Alton Kelley, Mouse experimented broadly with composition, lettering and imagery: Kelley came up with the ideas and Mouse executed the designs. Mouse and Kelley helped to establish the psychedelic style of expression under the name Mouse Studios.
