- THEM CROOKED VULTURES (Chicago) ARTIST EDITION -
Measuring approx. 30x20 inches, this piece (along with the Indy piece) was beautifully printed by the masterful hands of Steve Horvath and his crew at the mighty D & L Screenprinting. Sporting amazing pastel shades and a brilliant color fade, this poster glows. The imagery is a riff on the classic Zeppelin 'Swan Song' label icon. The original 'Swan Song' label image is not original at all, actually. William Rimmer was an obscure American painter, who created an image in 1870 entitled "Evening" or the "Fall of Day": it depicted the god Apollo (though some like to think of the being as Icarus, or a fallen angel). This picture was adopted by Led Zeppelin as the "Swan Song" logo and appears on many releases. Jermaine did his take on the Rimmer image, making the figure a tragically fallen, and very crooked, vulture. This piece is printed on white stock and is from a very limited edition of only 75 signed and numbered copies. $50
- THEM CROOKED VULTURES (Indianapolis) ARTIST EDITION -
Here's a print sporting excellent advice from Uncle Jermaine for all those kiddies who so desperately want to see a TCV show. The design recalls some of Jermaine's earlier work of the 1990's, featuring posters filled with paragraphs of text...something not often found on the 'traditional' concert poster. Regardless of Jermaine's words to Josh Homme about this print ('Man, some of the poster people will HATE this one...), the print quickly sold out at the show. About this poster, Homme said, 'Absolutely supreme...like an after school special, it helps and educates...'. Measuring approx. 24x18 inches, this print sports brilliant colors and is printed on white stock. From a limited edition of only 75 signed and numbered pieces. $50 (PLUS - BLUE Indianapolis Variant : printed on blue slate stock and limited to only 30 s/n pieces. $75)
- THEM CROOKED VULTURES (Toronto) ARTIST EDITION -
This print measures approx. 23x16 inches and is printed on pale gray stock.

The imagery includes trademark symbols from each of the amazing bands whose members make up this supergroup: Queens Of The Stone Age, Foo Fighters, and the mighty Led Zeppelin. This print is from a very limited edition of only 75 pieces. $50 (PLUS - There will be a surprise Toronto variant, in very limited quantity. Look for it when these items go on sale.)
