Advocate Art would like to introduce Rob Heasley from South Africa! His work is fresh and modern, with a blend of digital and traditional drawings. Rob’s style is funky and quirky and perfect for young fiction.
Growing up in South Africa, Rob always dreamed of becoming a ninja assassin. On his early path to Kung Fu-ness, drawing ninjas, deadly weapons and traps, etc. He found his true inner calling – illustration. Rob hasn’t stopped drawing since.
After school he spent several years abroad travelling, returned to South Africa where he studied graphic design and graduated with honours. He then went on to work for various advertising agencies in South Africa and Britain, where he has produced award-winning work in print, TV, CD Rom and Web for more than a decade.
He continues to illustrate & has exhibited work at a number of galleries in the UK. He was commissioned by Getty Images to produce and licence a series of illustrations, which have been used internationally for a number of years. At any given time he has a number ofpersonal projects on the go, the latest being a children’s picture book which he has written & illustrated. Without giving too much away it’s basically a horror story for kids!
One day when he has a little more time on his hands he vows to finish his ninja training…
