David Edward Byrd's Jimi Hendrix at the Fillmore East, May, 1968 Poster accompanied by its original concept sketch. This signed giclee is an artist proof published by the artist in 2013.

This is a Matted and Framed Print

This beautiful hand-signed David Edward Byrd print comes in a very nicely-done 20" x 14" frame with a hi-quality beveled mat and real glass. It ships packed in bubble wrap in a new and clean 24" x 16" x 3" box which is suitable for wrapping. I am packing these well, but I am also happy to ship without the glass.

The original sketch and final version were created by David in 1968 for The Jimi Hendrix Experience appearance at the Fillmore East on May 10, 1968. It was actually the second of two designs. Hendrix rejected the first (also for sale here) because he wanted the poster to show all three band members.

On the left is David's original concept sketch and, on the right, the final image. About this illustration, David says,

"I was living on a multi-media commune outside Manhattan when several of my schoolmates from Carnegie-Mellon were opening the Fillmore East at the old 2nd Avenue Theatre in the East Village with Bill Graham from San Francisco. Manager Kip Cohen called to say they needed a poster artist and they all thought to call me, as I was the one visual artist amongst a group of theater graduates. At the time I was interested in crystal matrices and used a hex grid to create the hair as a mass of psychedelic photons in orange, yellow-green, magenta and black. Unlike the San Francisco Fillmore, we did not do a poster every week, but only for major stars like Hendrix.

"Along with the first sketch for this poster, I found the sketch for the final piece. I was living at the Fantasy Farm Commune in Port Jervis, NY. A year before that I had worked on a film about lattice grids and symmetry, so for the big hair I decided to use circles and dots on a hexagonal grid, all done by hand with a drop-bow compass — which I learned to use drawing star maps for the Cambridge Astrophysical Society in Boston; they forbad even the use of Rapidograph pens as too technologically advanced to be trustworthy."

Matted and Framed Print

Condition: Flawless MINT

This Artist Proof was published in 2013. It is an authentic, licensed edition created and personally signed in dark pencil by David. It is a very nice print, very frameable and collectible. It comes with my signed Certificate Of Authenticity and Guarantee (COA).

In addition to his famous Woodstock, Jimi Hendrix and Rolling Stones Tour artwork, David Edward Byrd has been a wonderful and prolific illustrator of all types of art. He was especially active in the Broadway show arena, having done the art for Little Shop of Horrors, Jesus Christ Superstar and many other Broadway show pieces, many of which can be found at the link below:
