Stanley Mouse (born Stanley George Miller - American, b. 1940). "Cosmic Car Show" limited edition lithograph, 1967, numbered & hand signed in pencil below. Edition 174/350. An original lithograph on paper, numbered and hand signed by Stanley Mouse. The Cosmic Car Show was an art event featuring bands at Muir Beach, just across the Golden Gate Bridge. Artists painted cars in a signature psychedelic style and the resulting automotive art was judged by artists like including Stanley Mouse. Mouse is beloved for his rock concert poster designs for bands such as the Grateful Dead, and his cover art for Steve Miller's album "Book of Dreams" won a Grammy Award in 1977. Size: image - 26" W x 34.5" H (66 cm x 87.6 cm); 30" W x 39" H (76.2 cm x 99.1 cm) with border

Stanley Mouse's initial splash in the art world occurred when he was expelled from high school for creating graffiti. He later attended the Society for Arts and Crafts, and soon became seduced by airbrushing and hot rod culture - painting T-shirts, cars, and bikes. Later, Mouse became entrenched with psychedelic art in San Francisco. Inspired by Art Nouveau designs, Mouse and his colleagues began producing psychedelic concert posters for concert promoter Bill Graham - for bands such as the Grateful Dead, Big Brother and the Holding Company, The Beatles, and Journey. Mouse and Alton Kelley for example created the Dead's world famous Skeleton and Roses theme, and Mouse's cover art for Steve Miller's album "Book of Dreams" won a Grammy Award in 1977.
