Under his name there seems to be some missing artwork. Dylan and the Dead I did see, but not under his name. And being influenced by the one and only Rick Griffin (RIP), one of the most memorable things for me of summer 85 was the banner of his "Minuteman" 20 Years So Far banner hanging behind the band. That one mesmerized me visually as the Band did the same thing to my ears. There was no other like Rick Griffin. I love ALL of the Dead's artists (Kelley/Mouse, etc.) but it was RG that really took me over the top. ; ) I miss him, and to think what he'd be doing now. Hopefully him and Jer and the rest of the band out "there" are having a laugh together. ; ) ~Tom ( The AllTomMitt Drawing Machine)

    Where's the rest of "El Griffo's" work?
