Artist of The Month December 2013: Rick Pipito

Rick Pipito, AuthorAlthough not a visual artist by trade, Philadelphia native, Rick Pipito, is talented in a variety of art forms.  From a young age, he dipped his hand in the musical pool by learning classical and jazz saxophone.  Over the years, he expanded his instrument ability to guitar, piano and harmonica, as well as singing lead in various rock bands and a choir.  After writing lyrics for many original songs, he expanded even further by turning his writing toward stories.

In 2010, his dreams began to emerge.  His series of horror novels focused each on a different scare, while vowing never to do the same thing twice.  With a bachelor’s degree in communications from Temple University, Rick expanded his novels into comic book form, by writing several spinoff stories.  sCrypt Comics became a partnership with his brother, Dan, with the goal to get other struggling artists’ names out there for the world to see.

Being in the arts can be difficult, and while Rick’s plans for the future are countless, his focus will always remain… that being to expose his own works and those of others to a broader audience.  Rick’s novels can be bought on Amazon.com for the Kindle, or on www.lulu.com in print.  The graphic novel comic books are available in print as well.

In addition to music and writing, Rick is also the co-host of a podcast called “Think About This” (which can be found here: www.thinkaboutthis.podbean.com), and has been a featured author on various other blogs.  He also assists with www.homemadedelish.com as a part time mixologist and advisor.

Rick’s books include: FLESH AND LEFTOVERS; BLOOD THE SECOND HELPING; BONES AT BREAKFAST; SOULS 4 SUPPER; DEVIL’S DESSERT; TECHNO FEAST; NO IT’S NOT YES IT IS: ARGUMENTS

His Graphic novels include: FLESH AND LEFTOVERS: ZOMBIE INCIDENTS; BLOOD THE SECOND HELPING: LEGENDS OF VAMPIRE; BONES AT BREAKFAST: IN CASE OF WEREWOLF; SOULS 4 SUPPER: GHOSTLY HAUNTINGS

He also edited and designed Roberta Pipito’s Homemade Delish debut cookbook: CREATE IT, PLATE IT, STYLE IT, EAT IT, LOVE IT
