iPad Artist, Urban Sketcher

 

 ...and nice guy + gadget geek, some might add. Well, those are some of the better things Rob has been called. Making art on location on his iPad Pro, also known as urban sketching, is what he is most known for, and is what he loves doing whenever possible. There's nothing like the alchemy of being in one spot, absorbing the details of what's happening around him, then capturing the essence of what he sees and feels on his (digital) canvas.
