Robert Hendrickson is an amazing artist and illustrator that lives in Florida. I came across his work a couple weeks ago when working on a post about Jon Snow from Game of Thrones. (His art is #2 on the John Snow collage). He is a conceptual artist, game art designer and painter that has such a great style no matter which medium he uses. This post is a celebration to show off his amazing skills and to get to know a little about him.
You have such an awesome resume! How did you get into illustrating for Lucasfilm Ltd. and The Jim Henson Company?
Robert has several awesome videos on his Vine profile that show him working on various projects. These videos are so cool to watch, it’s pretty fun exploring his various sites and profiles because there’s always something even more glorious to look at.
What do you like to do in your free time, if you have any?
Travel when I get the chance is always fun. Luckily with the type of work I do I’m able to get to different conventions around the country so I can mix work with fun. Other than that, I’m a big movie, tv and video game fan. It’s a great way to get away from the work and get your mind on something else.
Lastly, do you have a favorite quote, regular or design-wise?
A short and sweet one from a great artist, mentor and friend of mine, the late John Alvin – “kick some ass!” It’s really what it all comes down to in the end, create art and let people know you were there.
Robert, thanks so much answering our questions, we really appreciate that you’re so down to earth. You are such a talented artist! Connect with him on Twitter @Hendrickson_Art | Email: firstname.lastname@example.org | Facebook
