    Grateful Dead Deadicated Tribute Original Album Art Elements (Arista, 1991). The 1991 Grateful Dead tribute album Deadicated featured an array of stars performing some of the Dead's best-known and best-loved songs, and was also a vehicle to raise awareness and funds for the Rainforest Action Network. The finished cover art for Deadicated was a partial element -- the rose and skeleton hand in water -- of the larger poster included in this assortment of original art elements. The artwork was done in collaboration by the artists Mikio Kennedy and William Giese. In the lot we have four items: two preliminary pencil sketches of the rose and hand, annotated and signed; a color composition of a rose in water, annotated and signed; and a (later) poster of the final full artwork which was also sold to benefit the Rainforest Action Network. The poster is in Good condition, with some visible loss at the right side, and measuring 26" x 39". The sketches are in Very Good original condition, and framed and mounted, measuring 12" x 15", and 20" x 22". The color comp is in Excellent condition, framed, mounted, and measures 17" x 17".
