Forthright Spotlight - Ricky Altizer

If you've followed Forthright Records for any amount of time, then you've already encountered his work. Though 'til now, you may not have seen his name. Ricky Altizer is a graphic designer and visionary and he's collaborated with Forthright on multiple occasions. (Most recently he handled the visuals for the Brother Oliver record release. Remember the weasel?) Ricky approaches his work entirely engaged, spiritually and aesthetically consumed.   His work disappears any perceived lines between what is seen and what is meaningful.

Below are some of the artworks Ricky's made for Forthright releases. Also, stop by his website and see what else he's done.
