Riccardo Carlet is known for his work with clouds. Riccardo first started drawing when he was only 8 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the bright pressure of being a child prodigy often got to him and he had a drunken breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own thumb! Riccardo found loud inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his bathroom for all the bottles to see! Riccardo eventually got married to ladder and they remain together quickly in their Pizza Hut with their 31 children. Riccardo would like to thank Julius Caesar, Johnny Depp and a cow for their constant support and inspiration.
What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I think the easiest part is the imagination, the picture in your mind. You have so many ideas and every single piece just looks so cool... but finding a way to realize your idea, so that it will even look as cool as in your mind, is the hardest part, in my eyes.
Which is your favourite piece and why?
Hard to say. Most of the time it's the last work I've done ;)
What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I think deviantART is a great and very easy opportunity to show your work to people all over the world. I began making art when I was little and still do it for myself. I love being creative, walking around, getting inspiration and the challenge, like I already said, to realize your imaginations. Looking at deviantArt: at some point you begin to have so much fun, seeing other people like what you did and even receive critique. It's like a game and you always want to get better and better and receive more and better comments...
What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
To be honest, I can't really remember if I ever got a strange or funny comment... I know, very boring... sorry
