Steve Barilotti’s Rick Griffin Documentary

by The Editors on October 25, 2012

Surf journalist Steve Barilotti is working on a documentary on the life and times of seminal 60s psychedelic artist Rick Griffin (creator of the surf comic Murphy) and he needs your help on Kickstarter.

The Film: “Griffin” is a feature-length documentary that explores the art, life and eccentric spark of one of the world’s least known and most influential 20th Century surrealists. Over the time-warped span of the 1960’s, one-time teen cartoonist Rick Griffin created defining icons for three pillars of west coast counterculture: surfing, psychedelic rock and underground comix.

Barilotti has reach is original Kickstarter goal of $20,000 but there are three days left so you can still help him out with getting this project completed. Click the link for more info.

Barilotti,
My Don Meek has re-launched FUEL TV as a streaming service and they’re airing my ’80’s WAVE WATCH TV show and the Rick Griffin episode will air next month! Hope all good! The Mate!
