I love telling stories with art! Whether it’s a journey to an alien world, a realm of swords and sorcery, or the action is much closer to home, I enjoy creating a sense of drama with an air of mystery in my work. I invite authors to tell me about their story, with specifics about key characters and locations.

Following our discussion about your vision for the book cover, I will assemble a quote that will include estimated timeframes for sketches/ iteration, rendering, and adjustments. I will prepare multiple iterations of the illustration, which will help us arrive at the composition that grabs viewers most. As I craft your illustration, I’ll be in touch with updates and work-in-progress images, to be sure that the image is perfectly hitting the mark. Let's get started today!

Robert made an amazingly well-done cover for my book, Forgive Us, working through a bunch of revisions in order to create something perfect. He is an extremely skilled artist and offers his work at a low price. 10/10, would recommend.

Robert worked closely with me to do a pencil illustration that was correct per the book. He did a great job drawing unusual aspects of the speculative fiction world. Another excellent collaboration.
