Bob Dob was born and raised in the once lazy beach town of Hermosa Beach California. While focusing on music theory at a local community college Bob began taking drawing and painting classes. Playing in a punk band for 10 years named Lunacy, the exposure to the music scene in Los Angeles would have a great influence on his art. Eventually, his interest in art took over and he transferred to Otis College of Art and Design in 1998 where he earned his Bachelors Fine Arts Degree in illustration.
After graduation in 2001, he freelanced working for such clients as The Fox Family Channel, Aflac, Kraft, Intel, The Village Voice, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Random House Publishing, and numerous editorial magazines. He has participated in solo and group shows at galleries throughout the United States and Europe and always working on his next solo show and freelancing as an illustrator. Bob now lives in Hermosa’s neighbor city of Redondo Beach where he draws, paints, and drinks coffee all day.“I’ve been very fortunate in experiencing and hearing many great stories in my life which now find there way into my paintings.”
