FIRST NEWS POST
— On December 15th, 2008 (Australia), I received a handwritten reply from Rick, after writing him via post the previous fortnight, with news that he would try to help out in some way and “contribute regularly” with this fan site. Here is that reply:
Got your package day after Thanksgiving, the 28th.
Would love to contribute regularly.
Busily gathering additions and writing and xeroxes.
Will try to get it all out to you before xmas.
Look forward to it.
Enjoy your summer,
Then, I received another message (this time a mammoth package!) on December 30th, 2008. To receive the prior kind reply was one thing, but this was most unexpected. What I was sent by Rick covers everything regarding his art, full stop. Rick’s 90-page reply to my Q & A inquiry now appears on this site in various sections, followed by: — ‘Rick Grimes (December 22, 2008)’. Throughout these passages, you’ll find quite a few surprises and pretty much everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Rick and his art, not to mention news on future projects and further site contributions.
So, great news for us Grimes fans! I hope those reading this enjoy the site for what it is, and I will do my best (with Rick’s help) to further improve on the content, information, and so forth when and if possible. Enjoy!
