Pencil artist Robert delights fans across the globe with his amazingly detailed Star Wars sketches. Even George Lucas has added them to his collection!
Raised in Stoke-on-Trent, Robert moved to Canada at the age of 17 to become a photographer. After a varied career that included stints as a photo lab technician, advertising layout artist and journalist, he became a medical photographer. During this time, he published lithographs of World War II canvases.
His work was noticed by Star Wars creator George Lucas, who invited Robert to work on Star Wars Visions – which saw 30 artists create their own interpretations of characters and scenes. George bought many of his prints for both himself and cast and crew members.
As a licensed Marvel artist, he has depicted iconic Spider-Man and Avengers scenes. Collectors of his Star Wars pieces include Harrison Ford, John Travolta, Tom Cruise and the late Carrie Fisher. Robert adds: “Only by practice can the dexterity of fine pencil work be kept up.”
