Jermaine Rogers Rock and Roll Saved My Life Prints On Wood Release

It was not with a light heart that Prints On Wood chose Jermaine Rogers' Queens of the Stone Age (Houston) rock poster "Rock and Roll Saved My Life" as their first release with him. But it was not a particularly easy choice either given the plethora of images Jermaine has in his repertoire; but POW think it was a good choice and they hope you agree. If there are any doubts, let Jermaine tell you bit more about this piece....
'Rock and roll saved my life? Why, yes...and in many ways. The music, the lyrics, the performances, the art work...and yes, the posters: they all served as little life-rafts for me through the years. I've built much of my adult life with the raw materials of rock and roll. I can't imagine 'me' without it.
Some of you are familiar with the 'flying eyeball'. It is a 'rock and roll' poster icon, used most famously on a concert poster by artist Rick Griffin for a 1968 Jimi Hendrix show in San Francisco, but used by other artists as well. Griffin was familiar with the mythology around the sacred 'Eye In The Sky', the all seeing eye that peers through human deceit & illusion. He was also familiar with southern California pinstriper Von Dutch, and his flying eyeball logo: a quirky take on the ancient icon.
The only thing that could make this print better would be another print by Jermaine! Well, guess what, Jermaine personally added a signed mini screen print with each wood print ordered. Not only incredibly talented, but equally generous and kind as well.

Limited to 50 prints, the 10" x 15" fine art wood print is priced at $100 with the option to add a custom brown Italian frame for $29. Once their gone their gone so get yours this Friday, August 28th at noon PDT at
