Some Recent Projects






I did these illustrations for Costume Designer Jacqueline West as representations of her designs for "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". Some of them were used in a promotional piece about the costumes for the Paramount film. I did them last year, but couldn't show them until after the film was released.

Ha! Wonderful work. I saw the promo folder they put out. I kept thinking "this was drawn by some illustrator, not the designer"! Hope your drawings end up on the Oscars.

Hi Josh. Yes, I am a member of Local 892, the Costume Designers Guild as well as 800. Many Designers don't draw, or don't have time even if they can. Lucky for us! I thought the costumes were great, and I hope she gets recognized.

I like how you use different medium s. I thought that movie was visually amazing. My favorite is the red dress.

Very cool Robin. I got the promo book as well and I was very happy to see your illustrations so prominently featured! Miss you...congrats.

p.s. Did you know that your Forrest Gump illustration is featured at the Bubba Gump shrimp at City Walk?!

yes, they are in every Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant (I have seen them in Long Beach, and students have reported seeing them in the Hawaii restaurant)

Nice seeing you at the opening tonight!
