About Rich

retrorichI’m an award-winning artist and illustrator currently living in central North Carolina. My illustration work appears regularly in magazines as crazy as MAD Magazine and as classy as Highlights For Children, also on Logos, board games, in computer games and apps, on t-shirts and ball caps, in ads and anywhere else that can hold ink, paint or pixels. My current cartoon, WIDE OPEN!, is being distributed by Universal Uclick on the Gocomics.com site. In 2015 it was nominated for the Best On-Line Short Form Cartoon by the National Cartoonist’s Society.

My line of wildlife art garnered me the Silver Reuben for Product Illustration by the National Cartoonist’s Society in 2014.

I began my career as a conceptual artist  and art director at Sierra On-Line, a pioneer in the computer game industry and my work appears in such beloved titles as King’s Quest, Space Quest and Quest for Glory among many others.

In addition to illustrating I like to create art for the sheer pleasure of it. I work on large scale acrylics, watercolor and many other mediums. I’ve got an affinity for old toys and many of these wind up in my work.

I hope you enjoy the blog and the artwork that accompanies it, feel free to contact me with any questions.
