Best known for designing the Rolling Stone logo, psychedelic surf and rock artist Rick Griffin is being honored by Vans this fall with a special collection of sneakers bearing his designs. In what seems like a no-brainer collaboration, Griffin’s original art will adorn two t-shirts and four different Vans models, with one coming in two different colorways. In addition to Griffin’s drawings on the interiors and exteriors of each model, they all feature his mindbending original lettering style scrawled all over. Sadly, Rick Griffin was killed in a motorcycle accident in 1991, but his legacy will live on with each pair. via Mashkulture.
