Rick Griffin is known as a surfer, cartoonist, psychedelic poster artist, legend. Griffin was born near Palos Verdes in 1944, where he took-up surfing at age 14. While he was still in high school in the 50’s he was heavily influenced by Mad magazines comic styling but he soon found his own voice, creating his own surf style that would become iconic. Through his undeniable artistic talent and connections through surfing, Griffin was soon working for surf legend, Greg Noll, among others. After graduating from high school he joined Surfer Magazine as a staff artist– creating the legendary California surf scene character Murphy, and working his way up to Art Director by the time he was of 20. But by 1964, Griffin decided it was time to move on and see what the world outside of So Cal’s tight-knit surfer scene had for him.

Vintage Skate board Art Show by Mike Giles January 22-24 San Diego

Both curated by and featuring the visual artist and photographer Desiree Astorga, the upcoming “Rip the Ripper” art show at this year’s All Sports Retailer trade expo is a celebration honoring the iconic Powell and Perelta “Ripper” logo, which has been an icon in the lives of skateboarders and artists alike for more than 30 years. As a result of its vintage, “The Ripper” logo has unofficially been ripped-off on many an occasion, often in compromising positions. Now, an official selection of over 50 artists have been invited to “Rip the Ripper,” this time legitimately. Amongst those slated to rip are names like Shepard Fairey, Don Pendleton and Wes Humpston (contributions pictured below, respectively). The show also features a work by VCJ (Vernon Courtland Johnson) the man who penned the original “Ripper” logo himself (pictured above).
