PopThatCard.com is the creation of Australian Cartoonist Ricko.
Rick is a member of the Australian Cartoonist Association and has been creating cartoons and illustration since he discovered Mad Magazine as a child.
He published his first cartoon in a national magazine when he was 12. It was about a cat, published by ACP Magazines Ltd.
This was soon followed in high school with a cartoon of a 'wild office party' that won a prize by the Sydney Morning Herald. Rick only entered the competition because the prize was a book by one his favourite cartoonists, Matthew Martin, who is still one of Rick's all time favourite illustrators.
Rick's first commercial freelance job was a series of cartoons published by Australian surfing icon Tracks Magazine. He has illustrated books and brochures for businesses and non-profit organisations, and produces regular work for the Australian Magazine New Vegetarian.
In 2007 Rick won first prize in a Sydney Morning Herald competition to 'design a birthday card for the Prime Minister'. This year he attended the short course, Drawing and Illustration for Design, at the Sydney College of Fine Arts, by well-known artist Christopher Nielsen.
