I don’t really know. What I do know is that what they get out of it is unique,” says Rufus. “He can do what he chooses and you can’t duplicate that.”
Rufus has a huge fan base: he got this photo, one of his first paintings which he sent to Groucho Marx, the legendary comedian who is famous for his humor. They were sent back and forth until they were finished, and they ended up together and he bought them both the same piece of art forever ago.
He says it’s really a big thing that I get emails and pictures of me everywhere from all around the world.
“It’s just, it’s so amazing. It’s crazy what a fan base can do.”
He says that because of the kind of fan base they have and because of the incredible amount of work that they are creating over time, he and his wife are having a hard time making ends meet.
“It’s very hard but it also allows us to do what we love very much.”
“It’s definitely something you can’t replicate. It’s a unique ability to get people to love something and love it enough until they get it to the next level.”
The Rufuses have been to six countries and are doing a lot of media to help their fans and also to give back to the community they are trying to help. They have built a website called TheTricksGuy.com and will give away money for a donation to a local charity. It helps them do that by using their personal savings to get them into those charities.
“We are not in the business of doing it for the money, but we want it to build a positive impact and build a community.”
It’s something they love doing and they love talking to people about these kinds of art things and talking to young people about art.
“I’m an artist in training,” says Rufus. “It’s not for me to tell people how to paint or how to make something happen.”
Their passion is for something that they love, which is what makes it so exciting to have them like them, but it’s also a way for them to help out the little people who don’t have a voice. We can only hope that these kids take over the world as soon as possible once they’ve mastered this art.
