Stanley Mouse

Artist Biography:

Stanley “Mouse” Miller, born in Fresno, California in 1940, studied at the Art School of The Society of Arts and Crafts and is most well known for his psychedelic poster art and album cover art for the Grateful Dead. Mouse worked in collaboration with Rick Griffen, Alton Kelley, Victor Moscoso, and Wes Wilson to found the Berkeley Bonaparte distribution agency as a means to produce and sell psychedelic poster art. Mouse and Kelly later teamed up to produce posters for bands such as Big Brother and the Holding Company, Quicksilver Messenger Service, the Grateful Dead, and Journey. The duo created the Grateful Dead’s skeleton and roses image as well as Journey’s wings and beetles image. Mouse began producing fine art in the early ‘80s and continues painting to this day despite a liver transplant in 1993, which the Grateful Dead raised money to pay for.
