- Rob Carlos
Rob started his art career working as a graphic designer for a printing company in Florida, playing D&D with friends and drawing and painting whenever possible. When that ended, he started selling prints on his website and was asked to do some paintings for the Robert Jordan Wheel of Time TCG, starting his time as a fantasy artist.
In 2007, Rob started showing his work at Norwescon, and other sci-fi/ fantasy conventions. For years, Rob concentrated on illustrating for independent and small-press writers and musicians.
