Tuesday Art ATTACK- Ricky Blake and Christian Franzen Art Show Tonight

By Christian Franzen

Ricky Blake is a practicing artist from Huntington Beach, California. He attended Long Beach State University in his college days and received a BFA in Drawing and Painting. Now, Ricky splits his time between being a state wide acclaimed middle school art teacher in the Huntington Beach District and finding time for his practice of painting. Ricky is heavily involved in the community surf scene here in the Sunset Beach area. He co-runs as well as participates in the retro triple crown of surfing and creates all of the posters, t-shirts, and merchandise for the events.

Ricky also shows his work frequently throughout the year in community events such as the Sunset Beach Art Festival. I always love running into or hanging out with Ricky. He is a very insightful guy and always has a smile on his face.

Ricky and I are showing are work together along with other local artist Bradie Shemke next week Tuesday June 21st on Main Street Huntington Beach. Show starts around 6 o'clock and will be held in the Quicksilver store on Main Street; feel free to come by and check it out.
