Richard Shulman leads
dual life as attorney
and mobile digital artist.

hen you're born into
a family of lawyers,
the pressure is on. And
Richard Shulman didn't
disappoint. For 17 years,
he has been in solo prac-
tice in Bloomfield Hills
as a criminal defense and
personal injury attorney.
He wanted to be an artist.
"I was always interested in art,"
he says. "At a young age, it came
naturally to me. Deep down inside,
I wanted to pursue art, but I came
from a family of lawyers — my father,
my brother, two uncles, an aunt.
"My dad would kill me for saying
this, but he told me, Art is a great
hobby; law is a profession."
Now Shulman has both — plus his
dad's support for his art.
It all started with an iPad. You
know, those ubiquitous computer
tablets that people use for everything
from games to readers to, well, mak-
ing masterpieces.
"I doodled, but I had no formal
art training," Shulman says. "I took
a couple of sketching classes at the
Birmingham Bloomfield
that's all.
