My name is Rick Pearson, and I live in Austin, Texas. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design and Illustration. I have been doing wildlife, science fiction, and visionary art under the company name of Leviathan Productions for over 20 years. 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. Much of my work is derived from over 30 years of meticulous research into the anatomy and behavior of marine mammals. I have often donated the use of my work to numerous environmental and wildlife conservation organizations, such as Greenpeace and Cetacean Society International.


Photorealistic underwater paintings and drawings of marine life. Also sci-fi, fantasy, and visionary art. During 2004-2005, I started a new phase of my art business, by doing my first murals, at a local public swimming pool. I’ve also painted murals in people’s homes, and on canvas for easy transport.
