    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 haven’t been active for a while, mainly because it's been busy, busy, busy! The last nine months have been spent producing and mailing out my sketch book, One Year After, finishing up the customized sketches as part of the fulfillment promise for the Kickstarter campaign, and doing a lot of ink experimentation. In addition, my wife and step-son finally got their permanent resident cards and have immigrated from China, so since August, I’ve been getting them acclimated to life in the U.S.

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!

Package received. Excellent physical condition. The personalised "sketch" is perfect! Rest of package up to your high standards, naturally, and a delight to explore... (so many festivals: are they on weekends a lot?...cause 115 days or whatever is a lot of the year!)

In conclusion: Am patting myself on back for being astute enough to be one of your backers... and the envy of others I have shown your work to...

Will continue to spread the word on the streets... keep me posted on your next project. Best Wishes!


btw: I hope you are as pleased as you ought to be..and trust that further sales will create funds enough to live in the manner your hard work merits...;)

There are no words strong enough to shout my despair! I just discovered your project on Kickstarter a minute ago and I saw it was finished, done, close, damn me!
Even though it pleases me to see it's funded, I can only cry for not having being a backer myself. I would have love getting your book.
Do you plan to sell it through regular shops as well? By any chance ...

It's good to see it done anyway. Good luck with the printing and everything ;)
