New Year's Eve 1993 at the Oakland Coliseum was a night of music by like-minded bands plus a nightclub comedian known for his grating, goofball persona. Nirvana headlined the evening and had just released In Utero, providing the inspiration for Rossit's poster design.

About Harry Rossit

A Bill Graham Presents staff artist, Harry Rossit has more than lived up to the "... New artist to watch" reviews he received in his days as an emerging artist. Designing posters since at least 1991, his work is highly creative and can include a detailed cartoon image, a performer's portrait sketch, or require 3-D glasses for viewing. Rossit has been known to include his own face or those of friends in posters and always hides a yellow smiley-face in the composition, features of his sometimes quirky art that keeps the viewer scanning his posters for details far beyond the "who-when-where" facts.
