SkullFACE FunFact: On this date in 1991 an American Master left this Earthly Plain. Richard Alden Griffin was an cartoonist/artist that was able to capture the surfing lifestyle and vibe perfectly with his smooth fluid style. When he transitioned from southern California surf cartoons to the 1960's psychedelic movement, he become one of the Big 5 poster artists of the San Francisco music scene. He managed to translate deep spiritual/cosmic/trippieness into beautiful works of art. Griffin's next adventures lead him to amazing images of Christianity and salvation. Throughout his career he never abandoned his surfing roots. Sure his art took on different subject matter and meanings, but at the root of most of his work there was an underlying sense of a person who never turned his back on the ocean. Whether he was painting a lone ship sailing on a violent sea, illustrating the bible, creating concert posters & album covers for the Grateful Dead, or his famous flying eyeballs, you could feel the influence of a life aquatic. Rick Griffin was a surfer, psychedelic warrior, religious man, cartoonist, fine art painter, father, husband, friend, mentor. To most he was an inspiration. Gone too soon, too young, but he will never be forgotten. As long as there are surfers and artists and musicians he will continue to inspire. Even if the inspired doesn't realize that his work is responsible for that inspiration. That is the magic of Rick Griffin. He dabbled in too many genres for that not to be possible. It is a little fitting that he would pass away in the year 1991, because he always did love a good palindrome. #SkullFACE#SkullFACEproject#SkullFACEfunfacts#fatbolstore#savagehenrymagazine#nhs#rickgriffin#artist#master#surfer#california#inspire#resist
Hey there, welcome to Fanballs, the newest and grossest Madballs news and fan page. My son and I are huge Madballs fans so I spend a lot of time browsing Instagram, eBay, and all over the web just trying to absorb as much info about the series' storied past, present, and future as I can. However, I've noticed there's not really one central place for all my Madballs needs. Sure there's the wiki for past info, but it's very incomplete and updated very infrequently. And there's toy news sites, but they usually only give info from big toy fairs and the like.
So I'm taking it upon myself to create a page that gives you all the Madballs news, rumors, previews, etc while also showcasing art and pictures of the many, many different versions of Madballs that have (and have not) been released over the years.
DISCLAIMER: I have no connection to Madballs, American Greetings, Just Play, etc. I don't own any kind of rights to anything. I plan on sharing news stories and pictures on this page. I will be giving credit whenever possible, so unless otherwise stated please do not assume that any picture or story is my work. If you see a picture or anything that belongs to you, please let me know so I can credit you (or remove it if you want 🙁)
