Lot Details
A Jerry Garcia never-before-seen original drawing, circa 1970s
An ink and watercolor drawing rendered by Garcia on a small piece of spiral notebook paper. Created in shades of red, orange, pink, and black, this detailed work shows a man standing in full next to a bigger image of the same man in close-up -- possibly a portrait of Beat icon and Merry Prankster, Neal Cassady [whom Ram Rod knew personally]. Though unsigned, this piece was created by Garcia himself who then gifted it to Ram Rod shortly after it was sketched. (Please note that the 'larger man' has been partially scissored as if someone had wanted to cut him out of the drawing, but then stopped.)
