Heart and Torch -- Rick Griffin
0

I went to see the Rick Griffin exhibit at the Laguna Art Museum this weekend; it was amazing to see the texture and detail of the originals. And how does he get that light in the water? The [[http://www.lagunaartmuseum.org/current_exhibits.html|exhibit]] was supposed to close Sunday, September 30, but the catalog and a limited edition poster are still available from the [[http://www.lagunaartmuseum.org/cart/|museum shop]]. The museum shop also has a variety of Griffin posters that aren't shown on the website.

Wish I coulda gone... Have been a big fan of his artwork since purchasing this book when I was at University...

This website (not connected with the museum) has images of much of the material that was exhibited.

Carl Rohrs, who did a presentation on Griffin at TypeCon2004, lectured at the museum on Griffin's typography. I might try to contact Mr. Rohrs to see if any of his presentation is available. Any chance he hangs out here?

Thanks for the news and the links Gus. I'm a big admirer of Griffin's lettering, very trippy :^)

Gus, message me privately with your contact info (phone and email). Carl doesn't hang out here, and I know he's been traveling lately. I can send him a message with your info and ask if he wouldn't mind getting in touch about the wonderful Mr. Griffin.
