My name is Richard Williams and I use the artist name Richie Rick. I’m a freelance illustrator living in Kent, represented by The Art Market Ltd in London. Clients have included, BBC Audiobooks Ltd, The Guardian, Hodder Children’s Books, Cambridge University Press, Orion Children’s Books, British Medical Journal, Saturday Evening Post, International HIV/Aids, Royal National Theatre and Imbibe and Squaremeal magazines. I am inspired by pop culture of all kinds, especially cartoons, cinema, comic books, sci-fi and campy horror. I also have an enduring love of mythology and folk tales and like to include gentle humour in my work.
