Rick Griffin and Victor Moscoso collaborated on a few rock posters in the late 1960s. The most famous pair may be these for the Bill Graham produced shows featuring Jimi Hendrix (BG-140) at Winterland and Iron Butterfly (BG-141) at the Fillmore West. As near as I can tell, Moscoso drew the bottom parts (the little yin-yang creatures, the radiating background) while Griffin created the scarab, the robot, and the lettering. I have the card versions of these posters. On the back of each is the line-up for upcoming shows at both venues. There was also a double card made of these images, with the Iron Butterfly show on the left, even though its dates came after the Hendrix dates. I like the way they look this way better, but I'm a stickler for things being in chronological order...
