GREAT RICK GRIFFIN ORIGINAL ART COVERRick Griffin was a good friend of mine since 1973 when he first wandered
into my Berkeley California comic book store Comics & Comix
on Telegraph Ave at Dwight Way back in 1973
We traded C&C's old comic books & pulps for his original art,
with me first ending up to his original cover to the
Print Mint edition of Tales From The Tube.
By 1991 I had became Rick's last art agent and partmer when we opened a
Rick Griffin Art Gallery in The Cannery at San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf.
He created several business logos, store signage, insisting that
gallery also carry comic strip book items from around the world as he
remained true to all the art fields he enjoyed working in.
He could never forget his Zap Comics involvement
and in this piece he also pays homage to his Von Dutch roots.
He was coming down from his mid-age crisis,
tuning back into his kids,
wanting to create new art
as he began the next level of his
Gaze into the detail of the crowned winged eye ball to understand
where Rick's mind was at. He was at peace with himself.
He was supremely confidant with his artistic abilities.
One hand on the lightning bolt of life trying to get him.
The other grasping pen and ink brushes as he settled
into a life of creating art for his millions of fans to enjoy.
Later that same year after a tremendous amount of hard work
and money laid out, Rick Griffin had his most unfortunate motorcycle accident.
I miss my friend, we went to First Showing First Day of the 1989
Batman premiere at the Coronet Theatre over on Geary in San Fran.
I miss the new art which would have been created in past 17 years.
This magnificent piece by The Master is being reluctantly put up for sale
as i need to get over to India to obtain hip replacement operations
so i can walk again. Earlier, HMO Aetna cancelled a long-standing
policy stating the BS "undisclosed pre-existing condition"
because i had been a passenger in a vehicle accident
coming out of a summer 1973 Houston Texas Comicon.
I cannot wait to win my case 3-5 years from now
as i am told by doctors if I do not do this now,
it might not be successful.
I am more than willing to pay a policy
for a real Universal Health Plan in this country
covering all Americans like most all other
civilized countries in this world.
