Rick Berry Demos

The last of the San Diego ComicCon demos: Mr. Rick Berry. It’s a shame we don’t have audio on these, Rick is as inspiring as speaker as he is a painter. Alas, we were not equipped to deal with the hubbub of 100,000 ComicCon attendees. (Next time!) No matter, it’s what he does that counts most.

Here you’ll see him scribble out a few lines, watch them merge, rub highlights out much as paint shadows in all in a fluid and spontaneous manner. A true collaboration between the artist and his materials. I was too busy to hear what he was saying but, if I know Rick, he was talking about the importance of play, letting your mind wander and come to unforeseen conclusions.

(Here is my earier write-up of the same event.)
