A crowdfunded doc on Rick Griffin, pop surrealist comics and psychedelic art legend

Digging this film Kickstarter, and by the looks of the amount they've raised so far, others do too: “Griffin,” a feature-length documentary exploring "the art, life and eccentric spark of one of the world’s least known and most influential 20th Century surrealists," Rick Griffin. "Over the time-warped span of the 1960's, [the] one-time teen cartoonist created defining icons for three pillars of west coast counterculture: surfing, psychedelic rock and underground comix." Check it out. Related, this amazing comic retelling of Griffin's life by Simon Rouse (PDF Link). Dig this previous BB post on the artist's legacy. (Kickstarter, thanks DC!)
