What is Blotter Art?

Blotter Art is one of Underground America's most important (and misunderstood) forms of folk art! In the early 1970s Blotter Acid Art began to make an appearance on the streets of San Francisco. Shortly after, iconic images began to make their way onto the Blotter Paper. The logo could have been professionally printed or have been a rubber stamp of some freaky image. Today, Blotter Art is a highly collectable form of artwork. It has transcended the underground and is available to art lovers worldwide.

This piece is known as Leary Profile. This was issued at a time when Leary knew that his death was fairly imminent. It shows a detailed, full size profile image of Tim, imposed upon a background of "smi2le" and other images. The term "smi2le" stand for a theory of Leary's: "Space Migration=intelligence2x life extension". Other images superimposed on the Leary profile include a the image of death on his left shoulder, which in turn is printed on "skulls" which are based upon famous alternative artist S. Clay Wilson`s "Jolly Roger" icon. The musical notes which appear on his face are from another of Tim`s favourite blotter pieces.
