Dark Star Crashes, Pouring its Light into Ashes.
The Grateful Dead has an extremely rich history in terms of live music, album art, poster art, fan art, and everything surrounding their long-lasting career. I have always appreciated them, but what made me a real fan is hearing the live recordings of their infamous jam-song "Dark Star". From the lofty lyrics, to the spacey jams between Jerry and Bob, everything about "Dark Star" made me fall in love with the Dead. Therefore, I wanted to pay tribute to that love with this personal project. This album would be a hit, and a dream come true. This was also my first time physically altering and adding ligatures to a typeface, which I had a lot of fun with.
