Vincent who is inspired by all things futuristic, had the unique honour of having one of his pieces taken up with the Endeavour space mission in 1992 - astronaut Mae Jemison was a fan and took the work up as a keepsake.
Gustavo Sorola one of the principal founding members of the renowned Rooster Teeth company based in the United States admires Richards selection of Lenticular Art pieces at the recent MCM Expo exhibition in October 2011 and considered them so highly that he twittered Richard on his own twitter page.
