Currently operating under the banner of Xiangbala Studio, I've been illustrating since the late '80's, and have been published in books, games, and magazines, as well as on billboards, CD's, murals and textiles. In 2006, I published a retrospect of over 18 years of art called "Ink: Images and Essays from Bob Giadrosich."|
Past clients include Arthus House, Black Dragon Press, Bridge Publications, David and Charles Publishing, Flying Buffalo, Green Knight Publishing, Iron Crown Enterprises, Imagine Roleplaying, Mayfair Games, Paisano Publications, Paradigm Concepts, Perseid Publishing, R. Talsorian, Sharayah Press, Target Games, TSR, White Wolf Publications, and Wizards of the Coast.
Between 2010-2013, I lived in Changsha, China, studying traditional Chinese ink painting, book and product design.
Favorite Characters: Calvin & Hobbes
Personal Quote: "Practice, practice, practice!"
I have, however, been stalking behind the scenes, looking at new work posted, reading journals, and keeping plugged into the community (albeit rather quietly). When I logged onto DA this morning, I was surprised and thrilled to see that Stars had garnered a Daily Deviation! Thanks go out to everyone who have stopped by to view, comment and fave the image, and especially to Sylwia Telari for picking the piece. Take a moment and check out her outstanding work!
October is always a strange time of transition for me; as the landscape and weather changes. I’ve been working on some large pieces lately, and must take them down to get photographed properly so that I can share them. Also, a new book is in the planning (much more on that later).
Thanks so much for your patience, and once again, to all who have stopped by to view my gallery!
