The usual quick classroom acrylic demo on the familiar asteroïd city subject.One of several very quick sketches was photocopied on drawing paper and stretched on a board for the color study. The final painting shows a mix of random texturing and blending techniques in the medium. The whole thing takes about 2 to 3 hours.

NEW SPACE, Laguna College of Art and Design’s (LCAD) appropriately titled inaugural exhibition at its new downtown gallery, LCAD on Forest, opens , during Laguna’s First Art Walk festivities.
NEW SPACE, the first of ten scheduled exhibitions over the next ten months at LCAD on Forest, is an exhibition of meticulously detailed illustrations by award-winning illustrator, designer and LCAD faculty member, Luc Desmarchelier; original paintings by astronomical illustrator, fellow and founding member of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA), Don Dixon; and space-inspired collages by visual artist Janice Lowry. Curated by LCAD Gallery Director, Andrea Harris-McGee, NEW SPACE is meant to inspire and embody the awe, wonder, dreams, adventure, ambition and quest for discovery that a gaze into the night sky has long aroused in humankind.
Located at 225 Forest Avenue—and also known as ONE Laguna—the state-of-the-art collaborative space is the brainchild of Firebrand Media LLC Chairman, Allan Simon.
Simon and LCAD’s President, Jonathan Burke, conceived of the mutually beneficial partnership in which LCAD will occupy the ground level of the ONE Laguna building. LCAD on Forest, will feature curated exhibitions, special programming and happenings. On the building’s upper level, Simon and the ONE Laguna and Firebrand Media LLC staff are in the process of developing a central, cutting edge, technology-based e-commerce portal that will connect Laguna Beach businesses, recreational activities and more through interactive and educational touchscreens and other computer-generated technologies. ONE Laguna will launch late in 2013 or early in 2014.

I met Richie at the beginning of Dreamworks in 1995. Over the years, he has been a source of inspiration for a lot of us in various art departments. He is a great collegue, an outstanding artist and I am happy to count him as a good friend too. He finally made the jump to the 21st century and has created an online portfolio. Now, you too can enjoy some of his incredible artwork. Cheers.
