The official unveiling of the Jimi Hendrix Forever Stamp being issued by the US Postal service takes place Thursday (3/12) at the South By Southwest conclave in Austin, Texas during a presentation that will include an appearance by Slash. The acrylic and colored pencil original artwork by Rudy Guttierez depicts the Master Of the Stratocaster in performance. Each sheet of stamps resembles a 45 rpm record sleeve that includes vibrant colored icons with lyrics or tidbits about Jimi's life. The 16 stamps on each sheet are arranged in blocks of 4 that create a kaleidoscope effect.
