The Blues Project Poster - ART BY NEON PARK - FD108

Lot 0148 Details

Description
Known as FD # 108-1 - The Blues Project Family Dog Poster FD108 is available for this auction. Blues Project included Genesis and Taj Mahal at the Avalon Ballroom on 3/1-3/1968 . The Artist: Neon Park created his amazing poster. This is an original 1st printing about 14 x 20 inches. You need to know more about this amazing artis known as Neon Park. Neon Park (born Martin Muller, December 28, 1940ÐSeptember 1, 1993) was an American artist and illustrator, best known for the images that have strongly defined covers for nearly every Little Feat album except for the band's self-titled first album. He also created the cover of Weasels Ripped My Flesh for Frank Zappa, as well as covers and graphics for David Bowie, Dr. John, and the Beach Boys. Illustrations for Playboy, National Lampoon, Glass Eye, and Dreamworks are also among his claims to fame. Neon met his second wife, filmmaker and painter Chick Strand, during the early sixties Berkeley scene. They were collaborators in art and life for over 30 years, dividing their time between Los Angeles and a small town in Mexico, an influence seen in his later works. In 1983, Neon began to notice numbness in his hands. His physical condition worsened over several years. After many tests and operations, he was diagnosed in 1992 with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. His response to the doctor who told him he had the disease was, "I never even played baseball." ALS is a degenerative disease with no treatment available, and doctors estimated a two year survival time. He continued to work, but as his illness advanced he could no longer paint, so he concentrated on writing poetry, typing with one finger when he could no longer hold a pen. He died in 1993. Neon is survived by his first wife, Judith Muller and their daughter Maya. His daughter, Maya Muller, owns a graphic design firm, Muller Design Studio, in Vancouver, Washington.
