Artist Robert E. Brown designed this beautiful image for this Tape Head 1970 calendar. These poster calendars were printed in late 1969 for very limited distribution in the Salt Lake City Utah area. Since it was a calendar poster most copies were thrown out after the year ended so it's very uncommon to run across a copy these days. 


Rob Brown did illustration work in YELLOW DOG COMICS #15 underground comix strip and several items for PROMETHEAN ENTERPRISES (An underground comic fanzine that featured the work of R. Crumb Rick Griffin Victor Moscoso Robert Williams Spain Rodriguez Rick Shubb Bob Zoell and others). In addition he created multiple front covers and strips for the Berkeley Barb (an infamous & notorious S.F. Bay Area underground newspaper in the late 60's). He is also noted for authoring & illustrating the incredible "Dragon World" full color children's book in 2005 featuring 68 paintings of unique Dragons of all sorts. You can "look inside" the DRAGON WORLD book to see all of Rob Brown's whimsical Dragon paintings by clicking here.


The company that produced this calendar was later told by Disney Productions to "cease & desist" from using the unmistakable likeness of Mickey Mouse on their posters & promotions such as this one. There were only 1 000 copies of this original poster printed in the one & only print run which makes them extremely hard to find these days in ANY condition.
