MoCCA to honor Zippy the Pinhead creator Bill Griffith

Zippy the Pinhead

The Society of Illustrators has named Zippy the Pinhead creator Bill Griffith as their guest of honor at this year’s MoCCA Arts Festival on April 6–7 which will also include an exhibition of his work.

From King Features Syndicate:

Bill Griffith?s earliest work debuted in New York?s underground press in 1969, appearing in venues including the East Village Other. In 1970 a move to San Francisco saw him become a part of the Underground Comix movement, where he achieved early prominence as co-editor of the seminal anthology Arcade. His signature character Zippy first appeared in Real Pulp #1 and debuted as a comic strip in 1976 in the Berkeley Barb. Today, Griffith continues to produce new ZIPPY strips for more than 100 newspapers across the United States.
