Rob G - British Columbia Caricature Artists

Rob G

Rob is originally from Toronto where he graduated from CW Jefferys Vocational Arts Secondary School, majoring in Design, Illustration and Theatrical Arts.After completing grade 12, Rob went on to study illustration and cartooning at Sheridan College of Applied Arts & Technology in Oakville, Ontario. On weekends, he would return to Toronto where he and his one time classmates would perform in a professional improvisational theatre group called Berford Seaman's Flabby Thighs & Butter. The theatre group performed together for about five years in dinner theatres and comedy clubs in the greater Toronto area, including an infant Yuk Yuk's comedy club before finally calling it quits.

During this five year span, Rob & some fellow students from Sheridan College produced two internationally distributed underground comic books also entitled Berford Seaman's Flabby Thighs and Butter which are now collector's items and can be found in various comic guides.

In the late 1970s, Rob began doing caricatures on Toronto's notorious Yorkville Avenue in summer, a way he found to make instant money using his artistic skills. Later he moved on to doing caricatures in Toronto's many rock bars on Yonge Street and also in flea markets on weekends, as well as working as a full time typesetter for a large print & design firm during the week.

In 1986 he moved to Vancouver, got married and had a couple of kids while typesetting for a large Burnaby graphics firm, as well as continuing to do freelance computer graphics on the side. He has always had an avid interest in newspaper comic strips and has created many original strips over the years, attempting to become a syndicated cartoonist.

In 2002 Rob and family moved to Edmonton, where he worked for a large Edmonton printer as a prepress technician, and has since signed a contract with the West Edmonton Mall to do caricatures of mall patrons. As a graphic designer, Rob creates logos, flyers and magazines through his other business RG Productions, a link is provided on the ToonsTent website.
