Art
Size / / /

Bob Hobbs was born and raised up and down the east coast, the eldest of five in a Navy family. His talent in art was noticed early on while he was still in the second grade and continued through to his graduation from high school. Following a four-year stint in Naval Intelligence, Bob finally went to college to study art formally. He attended several junior colleges and received his degree from the University of Hawaii. He went on to study illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. Bob's professional life actually began while he was still in the Navy just a year after graduating high school. His first book, "Navy Beans Notebook," was published in 1974. It only sold 11,000 copies, but this set the stage for a professional career that would span over 30 years.

Bob has illustrated the short stories of over 120 authors, including Ursula K. Le Guin, Larry Niven, and Robert Frazier. He's had over 300 illustrations published in magazines, books, games, and comics, including Amazing Stories, Wizards of the Coast, Star Trek, and art instruction books by Barron's and David & Charles. Bob's most recent book collaboration with Pink Floyd designer Finlay Cowan will also include the legendary Jeffrey Jones. Bob's work has been exhibited across the country from Park Avenue in New York City to the DragonCon in Atlanta to the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, DC. His originals are owned by private collectors and by a couple of celebrities such as Sopranos actress Kelly Kole and Buffy The Vampire Slayer actor James Marsters.
