Original 1968 Grateful Dead Art being Auctioned by Psychedelic Art Exchange

The Psychedelic Art Exchange is auctioning, THE LOST ORIGINAL ART that was used to create one of the most famous 1960’s Grateful Dead concert posters

BALTIMORE, MD, US, June 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Premier online concert poster auction, Psychedelic Art Exchange is auctioning, THE LOST ORIGINAL ART that was used to create one of the finest 1960’s concert posters in our upcoming June 2021 Mega Sale Auction that ends on June 17 @ 9:00 PM.

Alton Kelley’s “Sore Thumb,” tells the story of the Carousel Ballroom, a short-lived, 3000 seat dance hall, in the heart of San Francisco that would later become Bill Graham’s famed Fillmore West.

The Carousel Ballroom was a coalition of 1960's San Francisco rock bands that included The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and Quicksilver Messenger Service. The Carousel venture was short-lived due to a myriad of circumstances but primarily because the operation lacked the essential business skills to succeed. Bill Graham at the time was looking to move to a larger venue. When the Carousel did close, he quickly took over the lease and renamed the venue THE Fillmore West.

The Sore Thumb poster was created for a March 1968 Jefferson Airplane and Grateful Dead concert at the Carousel. Only 500 copies were ever printed.
The creator of the poster, Alton Kelley, was one of San Francisco’s “Big Five” concert poster artists. Kelley and his partner Stanley Mouse were fixtures of the San Francisco psychedelic culture and were frequently commissioned by the Grateful Dead to create album covers and related artwork.

This artwork is surfacing after decades in a private collection. The piece has excellent provenance. We have been told that Kelley lost the art in an unpaid storage locker in Boston decades ago. The piece’s owner acquired the art in the mid ‘90’s from a respected concert poster dealer. It has been in the collection of the current owner ever since.

Original poster art is incredibly rare and valuable, pieces of this pedigree seldom come up for public sale. The values of the posters themselves have been exploding in recent months so we expect the art to follow. We at PAE believe this piece represents an unrepeatable opportunity for collectors. When compared to the super-hot original comic book art market ,the quantity of Concert Poster art is minuscule. Pieces like this seldom come to market. We encourage all serious collectors to register for our auction that starts on June 8th and closes on June 17th, 9:00 PM ET.

NEW HAMBURG, ONTARIO, CANADA, June 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Patek Philippe Reference 3940 perpetual calendar men’s watch with 18kt white gold case and clasp, one of the most iconic perpetual calendar wristwatches available today, sold for $50,150 in Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd.’s online-only Watches & Jewelry auction held June 12th. It was the top lot in a sale that grossed $305,354.

All prices quoted in this report are in Canadian dollars and include an 18 percent buyer’s premium.

The Patek Philippe Reference 3940 is mostly found in yellow gold, with far fewer examples in 18K white gold, making the watch in the sale that much more desirable. Originally purchased in 1999 from Tourneau in New York, it was signed on the case, movement, dial and clasp, and included the original presentation box and literature.

The auction was filled with a generous offering of pocket watches unlocked from longtime collections; railroad grade pocket watches from Waltham, Elgin, E. Howard Co., Ball Watch Co., Hamilton, Illinois, and many more; vintage and modern wristwatches from luxury brands such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Omega, Longines and others; and a select jewelry offering of rings, necklaces, bracelets and many other investment-grade pieces.

“With Rolex and Patek Philippe prices at all-time highs, collectors are beginning to turn their eye to other brands,” said Justin Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. “Everybody knows Rolex and Omega, but as your collection grows, your tastes mature and you may develop an appreciation for brands such as Vacheron Constantin, Patek Philippe or A. Lange & Sohne.”

Miller said Vintage Heuer sports model wrist watches have enjoyed steady appreciation in recent years. “The demand for original, unrestored examples has never been higher,” he said. “Our lot 236, a Tag Heuer Autavia GMT 2446C watch, featured a blue and red ‘Pepsi’ GMT bezel, a very popular look with today’s collectors and enthusiasts.” The watch gaveled for a robust $17,700.

Following are additional highlights from the 314-lot auction, which attracted 456 registered online bidders who placed a total of 5,654 bids. A little more than one-third of the lots sold met or exceeded their pre-sale estimates, and 11 percent of lots surpassed even the high-end estimate.

A Rolex Reference 1680 red Submariner Date men’s watch from 1972 with stainless steel case and band, marked, "Montres Rolex S.A Geneva Switzerland Patented Stainless Steel 1680" on the inner case-back, fetched $24,780. Also, a 1969 Rolex Reference 5513 Submariner, perfect for sport and scuba diving or used as a tool watch (buzzwords for it included meters first, matte dial with white text and calibre 1530), finished at $16,520.

A diamond solitaire ring with a 14kt white gold band and a center stone weighing 1.99 carats by scale (F color and VS2 clarity), a fabulous, investment-grade natural diamond, plus 18 0.015-carat shoulder diamonds, brought $15,340. Also, a Victorian intaglio seal charm bracelet, 9kt to 18kt gold, with 16 unique charms, including a collapsible 9kt gold cigarette holder marked “Dunhill .375” and a pocket watch key knocked down for $4,425.

A 1978 Rolex Reference 1680 Submariner watch with an oyster band, creamy luminous hands and a dial signed, “Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Submariner 600 ft – 200m Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified Swiss”, gaveled for $14,750; while a 1963 Rolex Ref. 5501 Explorer Precision watch, a steel and 14kt gold version of the North American market Explorer that has become desired by collectors, commanded $5,605.

A 1983 Tag Heuer Silverstone #510.403” wristwatch with stainless steel watch and band, distinct design, limited production, Lemania calibre 5012 and a double Quick set date, in overall excellent condition, settled at $5,605. Also, a 1990s Rolex Ref. 16013 Datejust watch, stainless steel with 18kt gold bezel, a leather strap, champagne dial, Quickset date, retained in its original Rolex box with string tags and a 1988 date card, sold for $3,835.

A 14kt diamond tennis bracelet featuring 121 round brilliant cut diamonds having a total weight of 2.00 carats, SI-I1 clarity and GHI color and a gross weight of 23.51 grams, 15 inches long, found a new owner for $3,835. Also, an 18kt gold, diamond and sapphire tennis bracelet containing 18 brilliant cut diamonds weighing 0.94 carats, averaging G color and VVS2 clarity, plus 18 oval faceted medium blue sapphires, went for $1,416.

Internet bidding for the auction was facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, as well as the Miller & Miller website: www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com. Bidders were able to tune in to the live webcast on June 12th to watch lots close in real time. Phone and absentee bids were also taken.

One of the latest high-profile recruits for the music world of Honor of Kings is renowned Chinese contemporary classical composer and conductor Tan Dun. Captivating the world with his impressive scores for the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), which have won him an Academy Award and a Grammy Award, the music master came up with five tailor-made tracks for Honor of Kings that are selected in the new album.

Honor of Kings Original Game Soundtrack, Vol. 3 also consists of the heartfelt music by composers Michał Cielecki and Dong Liu, who each wrote two tracks specifically for 2021 Chinese New Year, Qiandan Zhang and Mi Tian. Featured in the previous soundtrack album, the inspirational works by HeartStrings have been once again picked for the new album.

“During the creation of this album, we wanted to go deeper into the inner worlds of these heroic characters so that players would understand and like them better,” said Sam Yang, Audio Director of the TiMi Studio Group. “We invited Maestro Tan Dun, along with other respected composers, to further portray the features of characters in the game and continue the musical style of eastern epic fantasy. We hope that players will join us in the amazing adventures in the world of Honor of Kings.”

The dog painter of Henley completes 2000 portraits of dogs of Henley-on Thames in the UK

The Ward family beast called Hendricks

After 12 years of generating portraits of dogs -Clive Hemsley last week hit his 2000 dog painting.

LONDON, OXFORDSHIRE, UK, June 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — After 12 years of generating portraits of dogs, Clive Hemsley last week hit his 2000 dog painting.

Clive recently moved into a larger new art studio with facilities to draw and paint much larger canvases.
Clive can also create portraitures of families – weddings – couples individuals perhaps family members with their dogs!

As well as continuing with his love for animals especially dogs -Clive said “ the new studio gives me so much more freedom the lighting is amazing I can create theatre lighting or use hi-light spots or just use natural light – this flexibility is so exciting as I can literally get any size canvas in this studio.

“I will as always support my charities and continue to use this new facility as a private studio and accept private commissions – now nothing is too small”.

Dogs and owners can now come to Clive's new studio at Greys Meadow Studio Rotherfield Greys Oxfordshire RG9 4QJ or arrange sittings with Clive direct or email him clive.hemsley@livedesigns.co or call him on 07702494424 or go to his web site www.thedogportraitartist.co.uk or www.clivehemsley.com.

Remember if you are not in the area or even abroad -you can email me your pics at clive.hemsley@livedesigns.co I can use those images to create a legacy of your family beast. Please don’t leave it till your dog has died that upsets me so anytime after a year is best for a dog picture – The perfect gift of remembrance. Remember 2 rules when taking a pic – it must be the same level as the dog and I must see both eyes.

Prices are the same as they were 12 years ago starting at 350 dollars for a 400mm x 400mm boxed canvas frame and I’ve always said nobody pays anything until the artwork is complete and approved as everybody has to be happy with the finished artwork.

I can post the finished canvas anyway in the USA for 50 dollars or the UK at post office prices from £5.15p for square canvas – typical time turnaround 3/4 weeks – if you have a special photograph and you want me to quote for you -email me the image -nothing is too big or challenging – and I’m no great businessman but I believe that you only pay after you seen and approved the finished masterpiece.

Remember a dog painting is for forever – not just for Christmas.

Anzu's technology will create the opportunity for hundreds of brands to have their content featured in Eden Falling's extensive game world.

We believe this is the future of advertising and gaming and the next step in bringing product placement closer to immersion. We look forward to the opportunities this partnership will bring us both.”

— Mike Weiser

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, June 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Indie game developer Razor Edge Games has signed an exclusive partnership with Anzu.io, the world's most advanced in-game advertising platform, to enable advertisers to place ads within its upcoming PC and console hit game Eden Falling.

Eden Falling is an MMO-Lite free-to-play game that will debut in a pre-alpha phase at Steam Summer Festival as a PC game. In the months following, Razor Edge Games will open early access, with a global release planned for the first half of 2022 along with a console version. Razor Edge Games plans to have around 20 third-party brand DLC partners, including celebrities and IPs, make special, limited-time appearances within the game to create even more excitement.

Eden Falling is being released at an opportune time, given that the gaming industry is currently experiencing unprecedented growth. There are now 3.1 billion gamers worldwide, and the videogame market is expected to hit $175.8 billion this year. Players of all ages are getting in on gaming, which is also attracting more attention and sponsors than ever before.

The game's scene-based evergreen gameplay is exactly what makes Eden Falling ideal for advertisers. Players are continually in an 'explore and discover mode' providing advertisers with an opportunity to gain impressions and make meaningful connections without disrupting gameplay. The post-apocalyptic setting resembles a futuristic version of the real world which will work in advertisers’ favor by positioning them as a brand of today and one that has a foothold in the future.

Anzu's extensive partnerships with third-party vendors such as Moat by Oracle, Nielsen, Kantar, Comscore, and Digiseg provide in-depth measurements for campaign effectiveness, including viewability and brand lift, as well as audience verification, data enrichment, and fraud detection. In conjunction with WWP, Anzu is establishing widely accepted in-game advertising standards, which has given brands including Vodafone, Samsung, PepsiCo, McDonald's, and American Eagle the confidence to shift media budgets to in-game ads through the platform.

Anzu, which supports advertising on mobile, PC, and consoles, is the only in-game advertising company to secure an ISO 27001 certificate, the highest level of security audit, which gives advertisers and game developers the assurance that their data is being handled in accordance with the highest security standards. Additionally, Anzu’s SDK technology delivers big for publishers, ensuring high-quality direct traffic, complete control of ad placements, and precise audience targeting based on first-party data.

"At Razor Edge Games, true to our name, we like to position ourselves on the cutting edge of the industry. That's why we're incredibly excited to partner with Anzu," said Mike Weiser, "We believe this is the future of advertising and gaming and the next step in bringing product placement closer to immersion. We look forward to the opportunities this partnership will bring us both."

Alex Yerukhimovich, Anzu's VP of Sales, added, "Razor Edge Games' innovative approach to gameplay aligns with our values, and we are thrilled to welcome them into the Anzu ecosystem. With the number of gamers increasing daily, this is a channel that lives up to its promise. This partnership creates an unbeatable opportunity for advertisers to join the gaming space and deliver cutting-edge campaigns to highly engaged, receptive audiences.”

Healthier At Home: ErgoFoam Footrests Now Available In Canada

The long awaited Canadian rollout of Wirecutter’s “most comfortable footrests,” the ErgoFoam, has arrived.

With more workplace roles happening away from the office, we’ve forgotten to take care of the physical side of the employee. Ergonomic care will need to be a part of our improved corporate normal.”

— ErgoFoam Founder Chris Lam

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, June 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —

ErgoFoam, a Toronto-based office ergonomics startup that’s designed what the New York Times called “the most comfortable and supportive footrest,” announced the Canadian launch of their footrest line. The announcement follows the company’s growing success in the U.S., and the ErgoFoam models find Canada at a time in which 59% of Canadian employees are still working remotely.

“After showing incredible growth in the US, we’re glad to have a presence at home,” says ErgoFoam Founder, Chris Lam. “Our mission since day one has always been to help people feel their best every day, and we’re excited to bring our line of ergonomic products to Canadians.”

At the onset of the pandemic, there was a general hope among experts that the inability for professionals to make it into work might reduce their seated hours, eradicating their commute and giving them more flexibility to stretch out at home or take a call during a walk. Unfortunately, the multifold pressures of the pandemic, including the stress, anxiety, and mental health ramifications, led to more sedentary behavior than anyone expected.

In an April study by the Canadian Institute or Safety, Wellness and Performance, 70% of respondents reported physical pain by the end of their workday—discomfort, aches, pains, and tension in their neck, shoulders, and back. That 36% of those same respondents indicated their demands at work interfered with their home and family life is no surprise; chronic pain not only leads to a decrease in productivity, and hence longer at-desk hours, it can take a mental toll that prevents people from being present and at peace in their personal lives.

“As a chiropractor, I have countless patients who come to see me due to neck and back pain from sitting too long at a computer,” says Dr. Cariann Paul, a chiropractic doctor in New York City.

The ErgoFoam footrest is designed to correct and reinforce proper posture habits from the ground up. A national leader in ergonomic design, ErgoFoam’s flagship line of footrest products facilitate better at-desk body positioning in any set-up, home or office. The high-density foam and orthopedic design guides the lower body into a healthy posture, relieving seated load, improving circulation, and reducing aches and pains over time. ErgoFoam footrests come in a variety of sizes and with an adjustable height; every professional can find the right style for their specific space and body-type.

“The ErgoFoam adjustable footrest is a product I recommend to my patients to alleviate issues such as sciatica, glute, hamstring, low back and knee pain. The high density foam gives firm support without being too firm and the adjustable piece allows you to add or remove inches, making it easier to reach optimal height.” says Dr. Paul. “The soft velvet gives it an elevated look and feel, but my favourite feature has to be the fact that it turns into a rocker."

Health and wellbeing have become a matter of public interest, and there’s a great awareness in the post-pandemic normal regarding the interrelatedness of all aspects of our health. Aches and pains can create mental wear and tear, building chronic stress. Stress can, in turn, drain the body, weaken the immune system, and become a co-morbidity for other ailments and sicknesses.

“With more and more workplace roles happening away from a traditional office, we’ve forgotten to take care of the physical side of the employee,” says Founder Chris Lam. “But ergonomic care will need to be a part of our new and improved corporate normal, both in-office and at-home.”

As Canadian employers continue to navigate their back-to-office strategy, it’s the perfect moment to establish new ergonomic principles. Whether a majority of the work is taking place in the home, in the office, or a combination of both, an ergonomic workstation has a firm chair set at the proper posture, a desk height that’s adjustable and customized to the employee, a raised monitor, and maybe a blue-light mitigating screen. More importantly, an employee-first corporate culture encourages team members to take breaks, stay active, and stretch throughout the day. The cost of cramming in another hunched-over conference call often outweighs the benefits of taking time, deep breaths, and a few laps around the block.

“Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve noticed the top companies placing a greater focus on employee wellbeing.” says Lam. “Mental and physical health in the workforce—and, consequently, proper posture—is becoming increasingly important for employers looking to attract and retain the best talent."

ErgoFoam is available for purchase through Amazon, with free shipping and returns. ErgoFoam offers a Lifetime Warranty on every piece, because nothing should get in the way of people feeling their best.

Small-Tooth-Dog Publishing announces “The Moon Was Not Happy: Compartiendo El Cielo." by Sean Buvala. The bilingual tale tells why there is day and night.

It's a kids' book. However, the story was developed in the 90s, when I was working with a group helping folks in addiction programs. It illustrates that we need energy and light from each other.”

— Sean Buvala

TOLLESON, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, June 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Small-Tooth-Dog Publishing Group announces “The Moon Was Not Happy: Compartiendo El Cielo” from professional storyteller Sean Buvala. Putting into print an original story that Sean has told on the road for decades, the tale tells of why there is both day and night. Available for order from your local independent bookstore, online sellers, or via the publisher’s website at smalltoothdog.com/moon.

Sean Buvala has been a professional storyteller, working with all types of audiences for more than 35 years. He says, “The book is written for families with young children. However, this story was originally developed back in the 90s, when I was working with a local group helping folks in alcohol recovery programs. The program used a variety of performing and fine arts. As the resident storyteller, I created and told this piece to illustrate the idea that none of us are alone, that we all need the energy and light from our fellow humans. I used the format of the ‘pourquoi’ tale to keep the otherworldly nature in the telling.”

The story wasn’t always intended for kids. But, Buvala says, “Over the years, I’ve learned that it lends itself so well to a great teaching story for kids. So it was fun and challenging to settle into this written format finally. Also, the artwork from Darice Pollard just further affirmed the choice to make the book.”

The book is written in both English and Spanish. Sean laughs and says, “Getting the book properly translated was an adventure. In any language, there is always such nuance to how figurative ideas are expressed. We had various people work on both languages, and we most definitely had many different opinions on the best idioms to use. I could ask two people about a sentence or phrase and get three different answers from them.”

Darice Pollard of Florida illustrated the book. She says, "I had fun going beyond my comfort zone to create digital art that appeared as if it was created with traditional media such as watercolor, acrylic paint, marker, and ink.”

The look of each page and the unique faces of Sun and Moon will grab the attention of young readers. Pollard says, “My illustrations are a result of both great artistic direction from The Small-Tooth-Dog Publishers and several months of experimentation with the drawing software, Procreate. As a result, I've been able to create some of my greatest pieces thus far."

“The Moon Was Not Happy: Compartiendo El Cielo” is published by The Small-Tooth-Dog Publishing Group of Tolleson, AZ. Anyone can order the title from their local bookstore or online book retailers. The book is available in paperback. ISBN 978-1-947408-30-2
