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." The following year, Sharayah Press introduced "A Life of Ravens" by Alex Ness, with illustrations by Mike Grell, Alex Shiekman, Josh Howard, myself, and 23 other artists and photographers.
Between 2010-2013, I lived in Changsha, China, studying traditional Chinese ink painting, book and product design. After my return to the U.S., in 2014, I published a years worth of ink sketches (183) in "One Year After: A Sketchbook," released under the Xiangbala Studio imprint.
As always, thanks for looking!

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!
