Una Toibin poster for KPFA auction

Saturday, January 28th, 2012


Poster by Una Toibin

A Ride on the Psychedelic Bus
Montage created from eight original paintings by Una Toibin.
This work was originally created as an advertisement for the multi-media CD-ROM game, “The Psychedelic Bus of Dead Knowledge.” Shortly thereafter, the piece was featured on the cover of Relix Magazine (Dec 1999) and subsequently produced as a signed and numbered poster. This poster is not available for retail sale.
_________________________________________
Like many other musical and visual artists, Una Toibin found inspiration for her artistic efforts in the bubbling creative caldron that is live Grateful Dead music. Una echoes visually what she hears, and she tries to honor the music in her work.

A native of Richmond, Virginia, Una got “on the bus” in the early 1980s during the band’s Mid-Atlantic stops. She currently runs CCE Graphics in Virginia Beach, and more of her work can be seen at seen at CCEgraphics.com and UnaToibin.com.

Through the years, Una has remained very interested in the efforts of all the members of the Grateful Dead’s extended family and is thrilled with the revival that is underway with Mickey’s band, 7 Walkers, and Furthur. She would like to thank them all for constantly opening her eyes to the world and she looks forward to what will come next on our Golden Road. Jerry and the great Robert Hunter advised us long ago “Who can stop what must arrive now? Something new is waiting, to be born.” Let us celebrate these new births together in music and art by supporting the KPFA auction!

Auction begins now and ends at noon PST on Wednesday, February 1. Bidding begins at $100. Bid by posting in the comments section below, and please keep coming back to top competing bids!

“Attics of Our Lives” book for KPFA auction

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

The Attics of Our Lives: Posters and Art of the Grateful Dead Archive

This 225-page book documents the special one-night-only preview exhibit of the Grateful Dead Archive held Nov. 5, 2011, at McHenry Library, UC Santa Cruz. Written by Grateful Dead Archivist Nicholas Meriwether, the book documents the rich history of Grateful Dead poster art and how that illustrates the band’s archive at UCSC. With feature interviews with Stanley Mouse and hundreds of color illustrations, the book is a fine introduction to how the band’s legacy is being preserved and presented in Santa Cruz.

The book was given to those who attended the benefit event. Nick Meriwether was kind enough to offer us a copy to auction off for KPFA. It’s a hard-cover book, beautifully printed on high-quality paper.

Let’s begin the bidding at $100. Auction ends February 1. Proceeds go to KPFA.

New auction item: Amarra

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Sonic Studio has donated a copy of Amarra MINI, widely recognized as the best computer audio player for the Macintosh (and the 2011 Stereophile Computer Audio Component of the Year), for auction.

This is a consumer audio playback system that uses the same amazing technology used in my digital audio workstation, soundBlade SE. It works independently or with your iTunes playlists. This is the way to get the best sound out of a Mac-based audio system. I’m going to use it for music playback on marathon day – everything from CDs to 96/24 high-res audio files.

Amarra MINI retails for $295 (but it’s on sale for $200 right now).

Let’s begin the bidding at $100, please. Auction closes on February 1, and proceeds go to KPFA. Winning bidder will receive download instructions and an activation code.
