Rick Griffin began his career creating illustrations for Southern California surfboard manufacturer Greg Noll and "Surfer" magazine, then went on to become one of the most dominant artists of San Francisco's late-1960s psychedelic poster scene. This postcard from 1980 is certainly not one of his most important pieces, but it captures his ability to animate the inanimate (the buildings in the background; the inkwell in tennis shoes and Mickey Mouse hands, running with his javelin-like pen in the foreground).
