After deciding that he probably wouldn't make it as a rocket scientist, Robin set off for art college. Emerging some years later in London as a fully fledged illustrator. He has since worked with many different clients on editorial, publishing and design projects. He loves old stuff, including vintage travel posters from the 1940's, 50's and 60's and enjoys creating bold, graphic pictures with textures and tones by hand, before finishing them digitally. He now lives with his family in Sussex.
