The George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts is pleased to present Imaginary Worlds: Concept Art by Sean Hicks, a special solo exhibition featuring the first winner of our Annual Scholarship Art Contest in 2010. As a visual development artist, Sean Hicks explores the art of storytelling in his digital works by bringing together tone, character, and environment. Hicks' colorful pieces include themes of fairytale, fantasy, and the hero's adventure.

"The GRFA has immensely impacted my art along with my life. People seem to react and appreciate my submission for the foundation. I have offers of people wanting prints of my artwork and, not to sound cheesy and cliche, but opportunity just keeps on knocking. I'm really really appreciative that my art teacher introduced this contest to me and that I decided to be bold by creating something beautiful for this foundation, and to be honored for my creativity! I can't thank to GRFA office and George and Wendy Rodrigue enough for this amazing opportunity that I will always remember and carry proudly with me throughout my creative career."
