The Art of Rock and Roll
Mouse (Born Stanley Miller) grew up in Michigan, where he began creating t-shirts devoted to hot rods and custom cars. He then turned his attention to Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, and other Motown acts. He moved to San Francisco in 1965 and the rest is history.
Mouse collaborated with Alton Kelley to create the Skeleton and Roses artwork featured here, as well as other works for Journey, Steve Miller Band, Jimi Hendrix, and others.
Using a small loan from the Grateful Dead, Mouse and Kelley also founded a t-shirt company which was the first to use four color process printing. It’s a standard thing today, but somebody had to blaze that trail.
