QUICK RECAP--A Moon Has Passed

Moon.jpg

A lot’s been happening in my world. Some things I can go into detail on… some things I can’t.

This is sort of a mash-mash post, but I don’t want anyone to miss out.

THE HAPPY/CAN SHARE PILE:

• Most recently, I’ve released a new contributor to my sister site (SequentialPotential.com)—my wife, Dr. Emily Hencken Ritter. We collaborated on a comic describing her work as a political scientist.

• And if you’re a process geek, like me, here’s new video, posted today (March 20th), describing the above thumbnail image’s creation:

• And the last from the share list—I’m also spending a lot of time spreading my wings online. So if you darken similar locations with brilliance or bluster on the inter webs, please like, subscribe or follow me on

THE SAD/HAPPY PILE

My biggest projects, SADLY, I cannot go into too much detail on.

But, no worries. They’re frigg’n awesome projects. And you don’t have to wait too long. Especially with RW-94. This is going to be a long series (that will hopefully end up as a fullY book-markable graphic novel by the time we get through it all) and the first issue should be released to the public April 6th (keep a lookout… probably going to be given away FREE digitally for a few days!!!).

STAY TUNED for how you can find out more about it.

April 6th is coming soon...

And finally there’s one other major comic project that I’m really excited about. Again (I know, this sucks) unfortunately, that’s all I can say on it… for now. BUT, I made a video preview!

That’s it! PEACE!

Figure Drawing

Greetings, fellow artists and fellow Nashvillans (yes… I DO know the correct way to write that).

I’ve discovered drink’n’draw at Channel to Channel (Thursdays from 6-8pm, Sundays from 4-7pm) and it’s helped me keep up on my figure drawing chops. Hooray.

Here’s some shite from last night:

Sequential Potential

I have a new website entitled Sequential Potential.

It is currently live and I put a permanent link in the menu above.

Sequential Potential will eventually house all of my inter-married art & science comic projects that have been impossible to envision on this site (And therefore no one but friends I personally talk to know about them). Until this week, it’s actually been pretty “dead” here on darickritter.com. I haven’t posted since 2016. But there has been a very good reason for this: I’ve been busy working. But smooshing my comics about science next to old paintings and inarticulate drawings, couldn’t be done in a tasteful way.

So I chose not to smoosh.

Sequential Potential will become the new info zone of graphically inspired science…

In my dreams, it is the beginnings of a network between artists and scientists interested in dispensing ideas and concepts intelligently across our delicate infosphereIn my dreams, it is also a worldwide phenomenon

…but my web designer has cautioned me to think in baby steps, much to my frustration.

I was forced to learn my lesson.

The website for Sequential Potential began in 2018. But its development was put on hiatus due to the firestorm of moving my entire life from the west coast to Nashville, Tennessee (an utterly discombobulating experience, as you might imagine). I have a new website entitled Sequential Potential.

So we packed up our bags and all our plans and awaited for a time of reason to return.

Now we finally rest, with a new home, new city. We’re unpacking our lives again.

The site is obviously incomplete but it does display my first published comic in full, Segregation by Design (published earlier in September ’18 from the identically titled book). For anyone out there interested in helping solve the endemic racial antipathy plaguing our society, please give the book–or at the very least the comic a read.

I’m ready to take the current iteration of Sequential Potential to the next level and have devoted some time in the future to clarify its aspirations of reaching out to academics, creating opportunities to rethink our language and for artistically molding information in ways that can be understood. was offered an opportunity that we could not pass up for professional and personal reasons.
