From NYC Broadway to Watercolour: A Speedy Chat with Tug Rice
Based in New York, Tug Rice is an actor, writer, and illustrator...
Men Crush 13 Dec 2017

Based in New York, Tug Rice is an actor, writer, and illustrator. A self-taught artist, he works in watercolor and ink as well as digitally, and has collaborated most recently on projects with Rowing Blazers, Thom Sweeney, Olof1982, and He Spoke Style. His Instagram is full of adorable illustrations he makes, mostly portraits or cityscapes, and we want to commission him to paint such adorable portraits for us!

My signature outfit…
Black turtleneck, jeans, boots.

The best style advice I was ever given… Invest in a great overcoat. Then it doesn’t matter what you wear underneath.

I would never wear… Joggers

My favourite travel device is…
my phone and a pair of earbuds. Simple.

On a plane I normally spend my time… knocked out from Xanax.

Top 3 songs on my headphone… Lilli Passero’s cover of “Tears Dry On Their Own,” “Top of the World” by Robin Thicke, and the entire Gosford Park soundtrack.

In the gym I… often skip leg day.

What’s on for dinner… If I’m going out — which I usually am since I don’t cook — a huge caesar salad usually hits the spot.

My necessary extravagance is… there are many. Fiji water, Bell’Antonio cologne by Hilde Soliani, and a daily jaunt to Starbucks, to name a few.

If I could host a party for anyone it would be… Sir Noël Coward.

In the art world currently I find most exciting that…
fashion illustration is having such a renaissance.

My daily art read is… Instagram. I follow a few art historians and critics whose insights are fascinating.

In my bedroom I have an artwork by… my grandfather, Don Johnson (no relation to the actor) and a few watercolors by Teddy Payne, a painter from Stratford, Ontario.

The most arty city is…
New York!

My favourite art-world ladies are… Kara Walker, Lisa Ferber, Kate Hawkins, Leah Fraser … and many others.
