I exclusively obtained this 35MM old slide of PETER, I presume its around early 1990s and the painting is a huge canvas of DAYDREAM but mixed with a HEART and different added artwork. simply uncommon. I would love to know who was the artist that took the photo.

This is the first issue of the PETER MAX magazine. It had a lot of intersting stuff for that time mainly esoteric text, unique Peter's graphic expressions and it reflects a Psychedelic influence of the Sixties. Very uncommon, a comic strip with Mickey Mouse and a travesti Bugs Bunny with mustache and long black hair (Peter) that leads Mickey through a wild journey through space and time.
Also, there's even a thermograph (heat design) of Max's face and even an X-ray of his Skull... so very weird. The back page, is a very funny LOVE cereal that probably ws sponsored by the Max studio. Ah, cannot forget a Vegan culinary recipt as well.

This was the first issue of the Peter Max Magazine. Subjects covered include Inner and Outer Space, Infinity and Eternity, Mind and Body and soul, Games and Laughter, Peace and Love and Joy, Astrology and Karma, The Artists View, and Ancient Wisdom. There is an article on the artist's life, and a comic strip with characters similar to Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Olive Oyl, and others. The ad on the back advertises Swiss Mixed Cereal with a Peter Max design on the box. One section is on the Zodiac, another on exercise, and one has recipes for things like Kasha Croquettes, Cous-cous, and Oopma.
There are pictures, red on tan, of the Peter Max exhibit at the M. H De Young Museum in San Francisco.
The magazine has some glossy and some pulp pages of different hues, 9 x 12 inches, 74 pages

This is issue N.2  1970 of the PM magazine
Much more detailed, had more advertisement and the
quality was improved. The content was still very psychedelic

Prior to founding Prodea Systems, Anousheh served as co-founder, CEO and chairman of Telecom Technologies, Inc.  The company successfully merged with Sonus Networks, Inc., in 2000.  

To help drive commercialization of the space industry, Anousheh and her family provided title sponsorship for the Ansari X Prize, a $10 million cash award for the first non-governmental organization to launch a reusable manned spacecraft into space twice within two weeks.

Anousheh immigrated to the United States as a teenager who did not speak English. She earned a bachelor’s6 degree in electronics and computer engineering from George Mason University, followed by a master’s degree in electrical engineering from George Washington University.

She has received multiple honors, including the World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, the Working Woman’s National Entrepreneurial Excellence Award, George Mason University’s Entrepreneurial Excellence Award, George Washington University’s Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award, and the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Southwest Region. While under her leadership, Telecom Technologies earned recognition as one of Inc. magazine’s 500 fastest-growing companies and Deloitte & Touche’s Fast 500 technology companies.

She currently works to enable social entrepreneurs to bring about radical change globally, with organizations such as X Prize, ASHOKA and the PARSA Community Foundation.

She believes the key to a better future for humankind is in the hands of our young generation, and it is up to us to provide them with the right tools through education and as good role models. Through it all, Anousheh continues to quote Gandhi, one of her personal heroes, who said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
