Rick Caine started his career as a Freelance Cartoonist, originally submitting spot cartoons to Surf magazines and Newspapers. In 1996 he created a Cartoon strip called Duck and Putty , a comic strip about two surfing buddies dealing with their own social flaws and inadequacies.

And even though Rick is perpetually inspired by the global and social phenomenon known as 'surf culture', he confesses his original and sole reason for writing and illustrating Duck and the big wave was to enjoy the reading experience with his two young children.
