About Richmond

Fireballs are in my genesI’ve always loved making and consuming visual art.  Whether it’s classical sculpture or comic books, outsider art or video games, as long as it’s got soul I will revere it.  This blog is an expression of that love.

I’m not here as a critic. I don’t do reviews.  I’m here to analyze not criticize.  I want to focus more on why we feel emotions for art.  How does it elicit such powerful thoughts and feelings?  What is it that the artists are successfully doing?

The feelings that we get from visual art are often immediate, clear and obvious.  But the ways we arrive at those conclusions can be very complex.

As the saying goes: a picture is worth a thousand words.

I want to show you some beautiful pictures, and then share with you my thousand words on why they move me.  And maybe you’ll feel something too!

Now let’s look at some art!

    Hey Richmond I just read your posts on Asura’s Wrath, Darkstalkers and KOF, I was really impressed by the indepth coverage you had on these topics. I proceeded to share them with my staff (translating to Chinese was a lot easier with all your pictures). They agreed it was a fun and “educational” read as well. However I wanted to contact you for some advice on this new project I’m involved in. Facebook and Twitter are not an option to me since you may have guessed I’m in China at the moment. :( The firewall literally blocks all “freedom of speech” websites. Luckily not Art-Eater. In short I was looking for some opinions based on a game we’re working on right now (it’s based on a very old Hong Kong comic called Dragon Tiger Gate). If you are interested in exchanging a few ideas please contact me! If not than I guess this comment will only serve to tell you that you are doing awesome work, you have awesome and agreeable opinion on your site and I wish you all the best in the future. Thanks!~
