Rick Griffin Poster

Recently, I acquired this Rick Griffin poster announcing the concert of Albert King, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Black Pearl at Fillmore West in San Francisco in 1968.

Richard Alden "Rick" Griffin (1944 – 1991) was an American artist and one of the leading designers of psychedelic posters in the 1960s. Griffin was closely identified with the Grateful Dead, he designed some of their best-known posters and album covers such as Aoxomoxoa.

Griffin was a regular contributor to Zap Comix, with his work appearing in issues #2, 3, 5–7, and 11–12. He contributed to all five issues of the comics zine Promethean Enterprises (1969–1974) and created Man from Utopia, a hybrid of illustration and comix printed by the San Francisco Comic Book Companyin 1972.
