Like the innovators and entrepreneurs of Workbar.com, the hot new coworking community in Arlington, MA, Rick loves a challenge! He resurrected drawing skills from his underground comic days, created a tattoo-like image, and launched himself into new learning territories, and enjoyed it.
Along with specifics of the mural concept, Rick talks about how we see, always respecting the viewer and portraying time in 2 dimensional art in these studio interviews by Workbar’s Dave Gentry.
When in Arlington, drop in for a free tour of Workbar at 1165 Mass Ave. Here’s a fun view, our first peek at the installed mural from the front door. Interested in-progress shots? Scroll down.Thanks.
We’d like to share a pleasant surprise and a public thank you. Are you wondering what’s next from Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin? In the midst of his announcement this week about the deal with Cinemax for his new TV series based on his award winning offbeat “werewolf noir” novella, The Skin Trade, George R.R. Martin writes a nice complement about Rick’s art! Very appreciated.
“…reprinted several times, most recently (and notably) in an illustrated edition from Capclave, where I was Guest of Honor, with a cover and interior art by the amazing Rick Berry.”
For more details about the upcoming TV series, I recommend the source: click here. Some of Rick’s images for Skin Trade can be found in earlier posts.
August in New York was grand! Both Opening Receptions– first Infra:REAL- The Art of Imaginative Realism at Jonathan Levine Gallery then Works on Paper at Arcadia Contemporary— were just packed with wonderful folks and fabulous art! It was a pleasure to meet so many artists and art appreciators.
We were certainly surprised and delighted by several NY friends, including Neil Gaiman, dropped in as well!
Scroll down for more fun photos during the Works on Paper reception. For earlier photos of Infra:Real reception, click Jonathan Levine link above. Enjoy! Sheila
In addition to framed artworks in variety of media by several talented artists, a wall of 16 custom Moleskine sketchbooks was a must see! Below is Rick’s sketchbook, which sold opening night!
