Richard Savage Artist and illustrator
By Rollerblade on January 31, 2011
Richard Savage has been a figurative artist for twenty years. His work is diverse and his aim is to capture something of the celebration of life in all its wonderful shades. He works mainly in acrylics, but is also happy working in oils, pastels, line and wash, watercolour and mixed media. Richard’s current projects are concentrating on figurative art, illustrations and book covers, working for four American publishing houses.
He also undertakes private commissions and considers most professional work. He has never shied away from provocative topics including fetish, gothic, gay, lesbian and fantasy. Much of his private commission work comes from the BDSM world; Richard has a working knowledge of how the scene operates and it is for that reason his clients feel comfortable with him working on their project.
Richard says, “My clients value their privacy and it is my job to put them at their ease while we work on their artwork” He works from photographs and sells mainly over the internet, a high percentage of work going to the United States as well as to his home UK market and clients globally.
