Artist Interview: Rick Basaldua
At Amazing Arizona Comic Con I met with a good amount of artists hoping to sell their wares to fellow geeks looking for that perfect piece of art to decorate their walls. Many of their work differed in terms of quality, style, genre and price. Among those artists, there was one that stood out above the rest in my eyes and his name was Rick Basaldua!
Basaldua is actually from California and came down for the weekend to Phoenix just for Amazing Arizona Comic Con. I was introduced to him by a friend and immediately his charm and wit hit me like a ton of bricks. He was nothing but smiles and jokes as he drew chibi drawings of his favorite comic book characters acting silly. As an artist, he already had my respect by the amount of talent and passion he has for his work but as a human being he became incredible. Even as other people came by his booth, he’d continue to be easy going and humor everyone.
I knew that I had to interview him on him as a person and as an artist, thankfully he was kind enough to accept!
Here is my interview with Rick Basaldua!
I have to give a huge thank you to him for even taking the time to answer my questions!
