“At Nathaniel Narbonne High School in the 50’s Rick began copying images from Mad Magazine and then developed his own style of surf doodles. Rick’s friends would pay him 50¢ for an original piece penned on their shirts. Rick was also interested in Hot Rod cars and motorcycles, their decoration being amongst his earliest professional work.”
Sounds like a cool guy yeah? Well check out the posters he was most famous for, work included advertising The Grateful Dead, The Doors and Jimi Hendrix! What a legend in his own right!
