ABOUT RICK

 

Cleveland Ohio graphic artist, designer, Illustrator and musician, Rick Novario created ROCK CITY CLEVELAND - ROCK-ART T-SHIRTS, to self express his passion and desire for Rock and Roll music in Cleveland, Ohio.

"I was fortunate to grow up as a teenager in Cleveland, Ohio in the mid 1970's when music, culture, fashion and attitude merged to create a "Perfect Storm" generated by Cleveland Rock Radio Station WMMS, The Agora Concert Club, Scene Entertainment Magazine and Daffy Dan's T-Shirts.

Together, they transformed Cleveland into a North East Rock-n-Roll entertainment, advertising and merchandising power-house that branded itself form coast to coast. From local bands to international acts, Cleveland hosted them all. I saw so many fantastic artists in various clubs and theaters where a ticket would cost anywhere from $5.00 to $12.00 and I would go to these events proudly wearing my WMMS "Buzzard" T-Shirt designed by renowned Cleveland artist/ cartoonist David Helton and printed by  the one and only, Daffy Dan Grey.

This is the reason I started ROCK CITY CLEVELAND! You owe it to yourself to purchase one or more of my originally designed Rock-Art T-Shirts. I guarantee you will LOVE to wear them and show everyone your Cleveland Rock Pride!
