About Richard Scott MorrisI have been drawing since I could hold a crayon. My mom often caught me drawing on the walls and in blank pages of the encyclopedia. I vividly recall drawing to the music as it played on the radio. "I am just drawing what the music says to me..." I told mother. I suppose art lessons were cheaper than a psychiatrist. My training in art started when I was about ten with oil painting lessons. That lasted throughout High School. Studied art next at Anderson College for two years, transfered to University of Cincinnatti for a year, then transfered to John Herron School of Art and Design where I studied for another two years.
During the time at Herron, I was working as an illustrator, Graphic Designer and going to school full time. I continued to pick up caricature jobs and became a freelance artist full time.
In 1990 I had the wonderful experience of working for WMCC TV23 as Pupeteer and voice of Roscoe the Rabbit, Max P. Lummer, and assisted in the writing of the show. What a blast. Lasted two seasons and the last season was a 1/2 hour show. This is where my love of voice characterization and puppetry first reared it's ugly head. I have been wearing that ugly head ever since.
â€‹ Testimonial"It was our great pleasure to have Rick Morris as our Artist in Residence at Cherry Tree Elementary School in Carmel last week. As the PTO representative who assisted in coordinating his visit, I can tell you that Rick was a true professional to work with. He was energetic, personable and has a true passion for his work. He was able to engage staff and students with stories about his creative experiences. He could turn a simple scribble into a special and personalized design for each student, to the delight of the young kindergartners and 5th graders alike! We would definitely recommend him to other interested groups." Kim Greene
