Nice to have you here. I am Ricky and this is where I collect my finished work within writing, painting, music and film.
I've noticed I write about death and sex mostly, not sure why really.
When it comes to painting I used to work within oil, but I've transitioned into acrylics a few years ago out of convenience. (the shame!) I have not painted for over six months though, maybe I am finally done with it.
During my studies I unfortunately got a deeper interest in film and even though I'm trying to get away from it I seem to make a short film from time to time, often together with cinematographer Jesse Ekholm. We are currently in post-production with a new film, hopefully my last.
Under the name Rikky dark acoustic songs with a hint of art rock are recorded. Earlier releases had other musicians contributing, but I seem to drift more and more to be on my own.
Oh, and if you are a GNU/Linux-enthusiast who is fighting the proprietary digital dictatorship and is in the need of another ally please do not hesitate to send me a message.
Thank you for your time. :)
