Press Kit:
SWEETWATER
1969

It seems like I did a million Press Kit covers during 1968–70 — done overnight for $100, money which I often did not collect — everybody from Peaches & Herb to Zager & Evans (In the Year 2525) & Buddy Guy to Jimi Hendrix — from Jim Kweskin to The Turtles — from Ahmad Jamal to Big Maybelle. This was the bread & butter, low profile, quick & crappy art of the rock art world and most of it is embarassing to look at, but it bought & brought beer and certain merriment to hustling young artists trying not to have to work for the Gas Company.

Ink, Letra-Tex and LetraFilm on white board.
