Richie Pope is an artist living in Virginia and working as an illustrator.
In his work Richie emphasizes the textures of his materials and uses a lively line to draw scenes and characters, often with an animated influence. Comics appreciation is also an influence on Richie’s work. Richie is contributing to the Bartkira project being orchestrated by artist James Harvey in which volunteers each re-draw five pages of the original AKIRA manga in their own styles while replacing all characters with characters from The Simpsons.
