About Rick

Rick Baldwin is a cartoonist and humorous illustrator originally from Knoxville, Tennessee. He was editorial cartoonist for Knoxville's once glorious alt-weekly, Metro Pulse as well as Chattanooga's alt-weekly The Pulse. Once Rick realized he was allowed to work for publications that didn't feature the word "Pulse" in the name, his career really began to take off.

For many years in the 80s, 90s and 00s, Rick's comic strips Outta Toon and All The World appeared all over the earth, a fact which he has long since apologized for. His strip Clown School Cockroaches is still in the works, even though a few strips have been prematurely leaked by rabid fans. Well... "a"... rabid fan. Okay, Rick released them. And it turned out he didn't have rabies after all. (Never lick a feral raccoon! Lesson learned!)

In 2012, Rick's year-long kilt-wearing pro-ject "A Year In A Kilt" debuted, eventually tuning into the life-long kilt-wearing project "Life In A Kilt." Today Rick publishes Life In A Kilt Magazine and co-hosts the Life In A Kilt Podcast. His kilt adventures eventually led to a new cartoon panel, Scotty Wallace and His Irresistible Kilt of Freedom which he updates whenever the crap he feels like it.

Today Rick resides in Atlanta where he creates fine art, humorous illustration, photography, writes comedy and occasionally performs at storytelling events.
