Who is Rico?
I can’t say that I know “Rico” well, but I know his color work well … and appreciate what he does immensely.
I’ve gotten to know Rico a bit over the years at HEROES CON.
After “MegaCon” this year, I knew there was something lacking from my table … a banner, some promotional material and “prints”. So I did some thinking and some asking around and decided I should have some swag to offer.
The image below was a piece that Kelley and I did mid-2013 to help a family member pay for some medical attention. This work was always a piece that really drew me into it. My thot was it would make a great cover or poster, so I immediately decided it would be my first print!
My intention was to color it myself, but things such as “WORK” and family, etc, trying to be real about how long it would take “me” to color it, I decided to give Rico a shout and ask him if he might want to put his spin on it.
I’ve followed Rico’s work for a long time, and love his use of unusual colors and his bold, colorful palette. When he sent this back to me, he did not disappoint!
You can get in touch with Rico at his web site: NO LONGER MINT
Now you know who Rico is … if you didn’t already.
Thank you again, Rico, for doing what YOU do.
This print will be 11 x 17″ and first be available at Free Comic Book Day. I’ll be at “Coliseum of Comics” in the Seminole Towne Center, Sanford Florida, on May 3, 2014!
- I will also be doing sketches.
So if you’re in the area, drop in, along with me will be, George Perez, Alex Saviuk, Shawn Surface, and many more!
