MisCon 34 Attending Professional
Rob Carlos started his art career working as a digital graphic designer for a printing company in Florida, illustrating the D&D games he ran with friends and drawing and painting whenever possible. When that company folded, he started selling prints on his website (the worldwide web was a brand new thing at that point) and was asked to do some paintings for the Robert Jordan Wheel of Time TCG, starting his official professional work 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. During that time, Add An Accent produced a line of pewter dragons and ceramic tiles based on Rob’s artwork. Recently, MGL licensing in London has chosen to represent Rob, and there should be many more new products to look forward to in years to come! Meanwhile, Rob stays busy doing both self-directed and commercial painting projects, drawing people’s personal dragons, and occasionally creating enormous murals for locations around Washington and Oregon.
