- Rick Griffin
Rick grew up in LA in the 50’s, reading and collecting comic books and watching Disney. For vacations, he, his parents and his older brother would venture on long-distance trips, and Rick would fill the time by reading comic books.
Rick’s dad was an amateur archaeologist, so, Rick would go on digs with their dad at the Indian Reservations and old Ghost Towns, discovering Native American and old western artifacts. Those trips, the exposure to those old relics, and Rick’s love of comic books would end up having a huge influence on him and his art.
Like many others, the design team at Socksmith are huge fans of Rick Griffin, and this collaboration is one we're most proud of!
