The Grateful Dead

Red Fertility/U.S.S.A.


Randall continued to create artwork inspired by and in tribute to his favorite music. One may observe the transition from the Grateful Dead to another band that boasted a devoted itinerant following, Ween, in his artwork via the inclusion of song lyric allusions and imagery.

In the piece to the right, Ween's "Boognish" cartoon character appears in an elevated position at top center. Another reference within the work is that of the song "U.S.S.A." by the Butthole Surfers.
