Darick has been an artist since before Nintendo. He paints and draws internal psychic feeling and emotion. He illustrates and writes comics of history and auto-biographical, collaborates with scientists and researchers making science more understandable and relatable to wide audiences while sometimes sidestepping into pure fantasy painting and drawing psychic feeling and emotion. He’s an artist of versatility. You’ll have to forgive him wandering out of a conversation with so much on his mind. To view his collaborations with scientists visit SequentialPotential.com.
