RJA Creations is the co-collaboration of Russell R. Cera and James Lincke, two Philadelphia area fine and conceptual artists, writers, storytellers and all around big thinkers!
"Our mission at RJA Creations is to share the creative process while working hard to bring our ideas and visions to life."
Russ and James, the mutli talented duo behind RJA, had the fortune to meet in early 2008, later formulating a creative partnership which has acted as a catalyst for a host of exciting, original properties.
“We’re idea guys, artists, storytellers; we love to imagine, to pitch, to design, to encourage one another, and hopefully others as well, to continue to dream
big and deliver, while sharing our passion and enthusiasm for what we do.”
That love for the creative process has led to the generation of the RJA Creations website, an immersive collection of art and storytelling, as well as a showcase for their ongoing collaborative projects.
“We want to provide visitors with a backstage pass, if you will, into the production of each of our projects. While we’re not looking to give everything away, we love the idea of inviting others along for a sneak peak into the “making of ” process. Not only that, but what we believe to be unique, is the fact that everything you see, hear, or read by RJA is done by a two man team. From the concept phase, to the writing, illustrating, storyboarding, painting, even the website; we realize we’re taking on many of the challenges of an entire production studio! We hope this is in some way, an inspiration to those out there that have an idea and a dream and want to go for it, but may feel overwhelmed by the magnitude!“
As for the productions themselves, James and Russ aspire to create diverse works that exhibit daring non convertional ideas over tried and tested formulas that the entertainment industry is over-wrought with.
“Story development is paramount to us above all else. It's our goal to evoke emotion and a sense of wonder through our characters and the worlds we design for them. Their journies, in many ways come to parallel our own, and regardless of the long winding road to the eventual destinations, it is the pure fact that we love what we are doing that makes our own mission worthwhile!”
