Feel free to submit questions you may have about Rick or his work. Who knows? Perhaps your question may be answered here in the future.

Q: I want to have a career as an artist too. What advice can you give me?

A: I seemed to get asked this one a lot. The one major tip I can offer you if you want to pursue art for a living is draw! Like any skill, whether it be playing the piano, or even tying your shoes, the more you do it - the better you will become.
Some may have more of a natural talent, skill or ability at this but I believe anyone can learn the skills if they practice enough. If you can learn to excel at those skills, well …they say cream rises to the top ...and I believe the same goes for talent.

Persistence is a very good trait in this business to have too, as you will consistently encounter rejection, and or things that fall through.

Q: I see you have worked with <fill in the blank here with a random celebrity>, or know <fill in the blank here with a random celebrity>. I’m a big fan of theirs! Can you pass along a message to them for me? Or tell me how to get a hold of them?

A: Unfortunately, I have to decline. While you should please know that these individuals really do appreciate their fans, I simply cannot serve as a mail forwarding service and in the current climate, I am aware that, sadly, a lot of fan mail is being discarded anyhow. Further, I’m sure you’ll understand as I seek to protect my relationships and friendships with these individuals.

Q: Who are some of your influences?

A: I’d hope my faith would be the biggest influence on both my work and myself. Artistically though? Wow. Well I admire so many, and each for different things about their work. I admire movie poster illustrator Drew Struzan (for his stunning way of capturing likenesses and his overall design sensibility), animator Glen Keane (for the fluidity and essence of life he brings to each of his characters), Norman Rockwell (for his realism and ability to convey Americana), Maxfield Parrish (for the ephemeral qualities and moods his work evokes) and Patrick Nagel (for the minimalist way his images are rendered). All of these men are just amazing artists…and of course there are the renaissance masters. Michelangelo, Da Vinci.

Q: What kind of art products (markers, pencils, paints, etc) do you use or recommend?

A: I exclusively use and recommend Tombo Dual Brush Pen Art Markers. I love the versatility of this marker and durability of the colors.

Q: I love Disney! Have you done any other Disney work?

A: I have been fortunate to be involved with many of the Disney titles. Among them are: Mulan, Lion King 2: Simba's Pride, 101 Dalmatians, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, The Rescuers Down Under, The Great Mouse Detective, Mickey's Once Upon A Christmas, The Little Mermaid, Belle's Magical World, Madeline: Lost In Paris, Hercules, The Black Cauldron, Beauty and the Beast: Enchanted Christmas, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Tarzan & Jane, and more.
