A look at the Works of Dave Robinson

View gallery

I am a professional illustrator living in Northern Illinois, USA. My specialty is in pop culture themes like movies, television, celebrities, and political/historical art. I strive to cultivate my style that is in a way reminiscent of the styles of the artists from the Golden Age of Illustration, with the likes of Bernie Fuchs, Bart Forbes, David Grove, Robert McGinnis, Jim Sharpe, Richard Amsel, Bob Peak, J. C. Leyendecker, and Dean Cornwell These, are my idols.

I have been working as an illustrator for over 30 years, and most of my skills were derived from art school, reading, studying and applying my thoughts to paper and canvas. I worked with traditional media until I discovered Photoshop, Illustrator, and Corel Painter, That was 5 years ago, and I haven’t looked back. The digital environment gives me all the tools to be as creative as I want to be. I do admit though that I miss having a tangible, original piece of art at the end of my projects, and it is easy to lose scale of your work when you are working digitally. But these are small sacrifices, and a printed piece gives you the ability to allow your work to see the light of day.
