My Bio
Welcome! My name is Rick Pearson, and I live in Lampasas, Texas. I have been doing wildlife, science fiction, and visionary art under the company name of Leviathan Productions for over 30 years. In 2015, I changed the name of my company to Ocean Spirit, to better define how I feel about my work. The purpose of my work has always been to celebrate the beauty of nature, and the wonders of the Universe, and thereby to teach others about our fragile planet and hopefully to create the desire to learn more about it, and to protect it. Many of the images that you see here were derived from over 40 years of meticulous research into the anatomy and behavior of marine mammals; especially the sperm whale. I have often donated the use of my work to numerous environmental and wildlife conservation organizations, such as Greenpeace, Sea Shepherd and Cetacean Society International.

Oh hey, you're watching me.  Nifty.
Can't guarantee I'll be especially consistent with updates, but the times I do I'll try to make em worth it. 
Also, you've got some good stuff here.  Moby Dick's been on my bucket list of books to read, and seeing your stuff here has gotten me stoked for it; I think I'll bump it up the list.
Best Birthday wishes :D
Thank you.

BTW, I retired from my regular 8-5 weekly clerical job at the end of 2014, and my wife and I are in the process of buying and moving to a much larger house, out in the country, @ 50 miles north of our current home in Austin, Texas USA. It is almost twice as large as our current home, and it will have seperate, large studio spaces for each of us to use (she is also an artist and photographer). With luck, we will be moved in by the end of May, and I'll finally be able to devote myself full-time to my art, doing new paintings and small murals of whales and dolphins and the glories of the Universe.
Best Birthday wishes :D
