RIP Dick Smith

A few hours ago Rick Baker tweeted:

The master is gone. My friend and mentor Dick Smith is no longer with us. The world will not be the same.

I’m sure he spoke for many makeup artists round the world who were personally encouraged by Dick, or simply inspired by his work.

I lucky to meet Dick a couple of times at IMATS some years ago and I’ll always be grateful to him for allowing me to use some images from his portfolio in themakeupgallery.

I was amazed by the time Dick spent with young makeup artists and students looking at their eagerly-proffered portfolios, although he was then already in his eighties.

RIP Dick.
