The unofficial history of the flying eyeball.

The flying eyeball, as we know it,
first appeared in southern California in the early 50's.

The first to paint a flying eyeball was either Von Dutch, or Dean Jeffries.
Opinions vary, but both had their own variation on the idea, in the early 50's.
Jefferies learned pinstriping from Von Dutch.

In the late 60's the flying eyeball appeared in concert posters,
underground comics, and album art by Rick Griffin, and Stanley Mouse.

Each artist put their own spin on the same idea:
 Jeffries' was very anatomically correct, with a severed Optic Nerve,
Griffin added arms and legs, some wore viking helmets and carried swords.
Perhaps the best known, in automotive circles, is the design that
Von Dutch painted on the back of his leather jacket.

Since then, the flying eyeball has become synonymous with
southern California retro automotive culture, hot rods, rat rods,
and what is now known as Lowbrow Art, or Kustom Kulture.
