Ricky spends late evenings in his basement studio, using the sewing machine as a drawing tool. In addition, he creates noise and visuals for an experimental group called Wind & Ghosts, performs with an international puppet troupe called Big Nazo, and spends every day designing girls toys for Hasbro. He lives in Cranston, RI with his wife, daughter, cockatiel, and dwarf hamster. Sometimes, he sleeps for longer than 4 hours at a time. His work can be seen on at his personal blog, in the Todd Oldham board book – Sundance Film Festival A-Z, and toy shelves around the world.
