Ricky N Browne was born April 6th 1977, he has a wife and a son with a kid on the way.

Ricky was diagnosed with a mental illness in 2001, coincidentally, around the same time he became a prophet. Ricky got pro-active about recovering from issues relating to his (at the time) poorly managed condition after he hit rock bottom in 2012 and has been on a recovery journey ever since. Ricky now enjoys a happy and fulfilling life despite his diagnosis.

Ricky is a high functioning schizophrenic that likes to spend his time in productive and sometimes useful ways, mostly in the digital realm. He makes a living designing websites, along with money he gets from the government for being crazy and shit.

On Writing

Ricky learned to write at school, most of his early writing was crap because like most kids he was ignorant and stupid. He had early success with a really short story called “Ricky by Ant” and later in high school for a four-page booklet called “The big note under the door”, which was thrown out by his mother as it included illustrations of a pair of mosquitos engaging in fourplay. Ricky wasn’t a good reader in his younger years and avoided it whenever possible. He read 3 or 4 novels while at school and after high school his only reading was computer magazines, he started reading regularly when he got dial-up internet. While Ricky’s writing has improved, he has had periods where he wasted a lot of time thinking about writing but put so much pressure on himself, he could not produce. He has since realised his limitations and finds it easier to write his bullshit nobody wants to read.

On Art & Design

Although Ricky enjoyed art in school and did pretty good in art class, he had no interest in pursuing it as a career. Ricky wanted to be a comedian and assumed that he would just have to act like a fool 24/7 and somehow by osmosis, he would be discovered. This never happened so Ricky decided to be the next Mark Zuckerburger, at a time when Facebook didn’t exist. What happened while following this pursuit, Ricky signed up to a web design course in order to create the next big thing and actually learned how to make dinky HTML websites for other people.

While pursuing his goals of world domination, his course also led him to learn how to design graphics on the computer, leading him full circle back to the whole art thing.

Has he improved much over time? That’s debatable, but he has at least stopped using the glow tool all the time and has moved on from the font ‘Bank Gothic’.

On Illustration

Ricky N Browne never had the hand coordination or creativity to be a great illustrator, this, however, has not stopped him from giving it a red hot go. Ricky started out drawing dicks as a kid and has progressed ever so slowly from there.

He recently purchased a cheap electronic illustration tablet which has renewed his interest in the drawing.

On Humour

Ricky N Browne’s old mantra was “Make them laugh, at any cost”. Ricky is a changed man these days, with a mantra more along the lines of “Get off my lawn,” Ricky got laughs at an early age, which made him decide to become someone who was looking for the funny in every situation, no matter its appropriateness. Ricky has since grown into a crotchety old man who cares little for this sort of shenanigans and tomfoolery.

On Achievements

Ricky has yet to win the Order of Australia Medal, an Oscar, a Logie, a Bafta, the Medal of Honour, Australian of the Year, or even a free Paddle Pop from a Streets Paddle Pop Licker Prize. You name it and Ricky hasn’t won it. Ricky has however received various Certificates for Courses he completed and even the odd First Aid Certificate. This and more have been included on his blog of Ricky’s list of lifetime achievements. Ricky’s Achievements blog also includes a corner unit Ricky made at school, a police check, almost spotless except for a license disqualification for drink driving. Ricky was also in a play called ‘Away’ which he performed with the Wesley Players where he was able to remember over half of his lines.

Lizzy Browne

I love you totally
I’d never use Kung Fu on you
You taste better than chicken
You’re more tender than an 18 hour allow cooked prime rib
Your eyes see into my soul and tell me “Be better”
Your hugs are like a warm shower when you have a fever
Your attitude is appropriate for most situations
Even your spotty legs are good
You are the pinnacle of Elizabeth’s
I love every moment
With you

The One!

There can be only one
There can be only some
There can be only none
There can be only 658
There can be whatever you think
You’re making it up
You don’t have the answer
Accept that
Accept it
