"BG133 is a double-sized poster advertising four consecutive Fillmore West mid-week and weekend concerts. A triptych in design, Griffin used hand-drawn color plates to make 3-D images project from the background, and the frames of the panel appear to be insect legs. A collaboration between Griffin and Alton Kelley, the poster's central figure may be the herald from Hell, a menacing image which contrasts with the bubble-infused, cartoon-style lettering of the side panels."
