Deadheads wanted Bertha at the funeral "The Grateful Dead"
Deadhead or Dead Head is a name given to fans of the American jam band, the Grateful Dead. In the 1970s, a number of fans began traveling to see the band in as many shows or festival venues as they could. With large numbers of people thus attending strings of shows, a community developed. Deadheads developed their own idioms and slang.
This design depicts the skull and roses symbol that is dominant in the Grateful Dead Culture.
A Deadhead called and asked us to make this design for his friend who had a sudden heart attack. We had to do some research to understand it, but our Deadhead customers were very pleased with our design.
