This lot showcases ORIGINAL PRODUCTION ART by the late, great master Rick Griffin!


The colorful cover to 1969's "Changes" Issue Number 3 Comic book was designed by Rick Griffin. The comic also included work by additional underground art legends like Robert Crumb, Jack "Jaxon" Jackson, and Gilbert Shelton. This is an original color separation, olive green-brown ink plate of Griffin's cover design on blue illustration board - with Rick Griffin's hand ink strokes shading in the colored areas! The word "brown" written in black ink in the lower right corner was also done by the artist! 


Griffin was a renowned member of the San Francisco Underground Art Community that flourished around the same time as the poster revolution. Griffin's artistic contributions to Zap comix are some of the finest works ever created by the artist. Changes comic #3 was printed and distributed by Harbinger University Press, and also included articles on Eastern Philosophy.


In recent years we have witnessed a huge increase in demand for Griffin Original Art by collectors worldwide. The reason is simple. In most cases, artwork like this does not make it outside the artist’s circle of immediate family or personal possessions. So when something like this DOES surface, its uniqueness and desirability is quickly perceived by collectors. This piece belonged to the artist and was subsequently acquired by a known collector of Griffin’s work.
