Rick Sealock

pplied Arts Magazine is featuring ACAD grad and former instructor Rick Sealock in a Q&A for their Blast from the Past feature HERE
My favourite: AA: What would you change about this business if you were made Emperor of the Universe? S: My rates: crowns cost a great deal . . . and the robes – well, don't get me started. I would first issue an edict ordering all illustration to be pushed to its creative, conceptual and technical edge. Commissioned illustration is not scary or without the need of art direction. I know it's not a photograph and may be interpreted in a variety of ways, but that is why we are in this profession. Creativity and boundaries – crucial!
