In 1978 the
came together for the first Streetfaire,
advertised with a poster by artist David Wills.
In 1979, for
the 2nd Annual Streetfair, a Poster Contest was launched...
My entry was the first winner...
In 1980 I hand airbrushed 150
and also designed the poster
for the 4th Annual Streetfair
Volunteers shirt design Second design sold at the fair
In 1983 (6th Annual)
The same year I created this t-shirt design

This design was so popular that I adapted it and
In 2007 I went ahead and colored the original image to see
This full color version has never
Volunteer T-shirt design
|1984||In 1984 and '85, unfortunately there was no poster contest held due to lack of funds... there was going to be no poster period, only flyers.
I stepped up and volunteered
a poster design.
Design that I went ahead and printed 100 copies of,
Both are rare, and I have
|In 1986 I created the
signature logo as a black and white image. I subsequently altered it and made it into a full color design which I printed
100 T-shirts of and sold
them at the fair.
|The new color version of the logo was much more eye appealing and the Streetfair had black silk jackets embroidered for the board of directors. (mine has long since faded but my wife's is
still in pristeen shape).
This design is usually printed in a specific color palette for the volunteers t-shirts (people helping the day of the fair).
It is available for sale in it's full-color glory at the Streetfair booth at Haight and Ashbury, every year the day of the fair
and on their website. Available also at Haight Ashbury T-Shirts - 1500 Haight Street.
Then in 1989 (12th Annual)
my third contest winner
1990 T-Shirt Design
To the right, a cover design
I entered the Contest with a computer-generated collage:
A Hieronimus Bosch background plastered with photos of everybody involved in the
development and continued functioning of the fair, plus cultural, pop and cartoon icons...
and 3-D lettering, one of my favorites (I think of it as my version of the Sgt. Pepper
album cover)... too bad it didn't win...
And finally in 1997
my fourth and last contest winner: the 20th Anniversary poster,
(which I originally designed in 1982 as a Fifth Annual Poster, a black & white image
that I subsequently scanned, colorised and manipulated to include a small
caricature of myself and my previous winning posters (in one of the booths in the scene) and more......
The Streetfaire also sold the 20th poster printed on t-shirts.
