Roe, David

David Fairbrother-Roe is a Liverpudlian illustrator, he studied at the Royal Academy in London in the mid 60s before tuning in and turning on and becoming a prolific popartnik. His acadmically-trained technique put him head and shoulders above many of his audodidact contemporaries producing psychedelic art. In 1968, 1969 and 1970, Dave was the artist who produced the posters, programmes and tickets for the Isle of Wight Festivals: Britain's most famous 60s rock festivals (the UK's Woodstock). The most famous of these is the 'Psychedelic Drummer' poster... one of the original posters reportedly now hangs in Noel Gallagher's living room. Dave wishes to make inquiries into potential museum interest in his originals of his rock-related works: he's interested in a younger generation seeing more of his work. They include - The original drawings, proofs and final products (posters, tickets, programs) for the 1968, 1969 and 1970 Isle of Wight Festivals. have attached some sample images of the works. - Original photos of Jimi Hendrix performing at the Isle of Wight festival (his last UK concert). In the 1970s, Dave produced acclaimed album covers for Jon Anderson of Yes and Nazareth. He also produced 'science fantasy' cover art for the Pern novels of the Tolkienesque writer Anne McCaffrey. McCaffrey called McCaffrey called him in a letter the 'king of dragon artists', and his talent for dragon-painting led him to work on a (lost... Dave has the demo) album on Dragonlore with Jon Andersen. If you know of anyone who would be interested in purchasing the works, please E-mail
