Robert Johnson

Robert’s art career started in Commercial Art School in Minnesota and was hired at the Billings Gazette right after graduating in 1981. His first art show was displayed in the Billings Gazette Atrium 33 years ago. Inspiration for his work comes from Peter Max, Roger Dean, and other 60’s pop-art surrealist’s.
The medium he uses has evolved into what he calls, “Pen & Pixel.” A method of pencil sketches of the subject on a large sketch pad. Once the sketch is where he wants it, He lays tracing paper, or onion skin over the top of the art and makes a black, line art drawing. He usually draws multiple black & white overlays until satisfied with the final line art.
The black line art is scanned into a computer where it’s converted into a vectored line art drawing, and then a pop-art color palette is applied to the artwork.  So,  basically it’s hybrid-art of natural hand drawings with computer applied colors. The final image can be scaled up and down, to any size of final printing without losing detail.
Johnson has done Illustrations for multiple newspapers and magazines in Washington D.C., Denver, Colorado, and Billings, Montana.
His artwork was published regularly in Magic Magazine, and he has also been a featured artist in local Montana Art galleries.

Rob also enjoys creating custom pet portraits on metal. Click here to contact Rob about your own pet portrait.

Verified Archival Materials Used

The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.

Description from Merchant:

Printing images is a serious investment. Ounce per ounce, printer inks are more expensive than Dom Perignon, and the time and tools used to print require substantial commitments. To make prints of beautiful images without taking the steps necessary to print them so they will last as long as possible is unfathomable. Why would we do this? The few pennies or minutes saved by cutting corners are minuscule, and these compromises will come back to bite us. That's why we only utilize inks and media that are certified "Archival" and/or "Acid Free"
