ROBERT BLANCAS Artist
Artist from Fresno, CA specializing in Portraits, Pencil and Ink work, Comic Book Art and Graphic Design.
I studied at Fresno State University (CSU, Fresno) where I majored in Art with an emphasis on Figure Drawing. Over the years, I have done countless Art commissions, Graphic Design work and have been published as a Comic Book Artist, inking a few independent books. Most recently, I am the Illustrator of 2 Children's books: Brave Lolis Learns English and Brave Lolis's Box of Hope. My work has also been featured on local television shows. You can view my last interview HERE.
I use Prismacolor pencils and pastels for a majority of my Portrait and Color Artwork. On occasion, I do use traditional graphite pencils, but have been preferring the color pencil for my work. I use Windsor & Newton Sable Hair #3 to ink my Comic Art along with some technical pens. I do color digitally with Adobe Photoshop, but prefer hands-on approach to my Artwork.
I also give class demonstrations on Drawing! Only requirement is they must be local area (Fresno/Clovis) and 4th grade and up. These are 30 minute minimum sessions where I discuss my techniques/experiences with my Art.
Contact me for more info at email@example.com.
On a related note, I do offer Private Lessons for my Art Techniques. I simplify everything as much as possible for even the most novice student. I believe anyone can learn how to draw with time and dedication. Contact for more info!
For commissioned Artwork, I require 50% upfront cost to secure the commission (NO CHECKS). The balance to be due upon completion. I ask for 2 week turnaround time frame for completion. Pricing is discussed individually. All Art is different and takes a different amount of time.
I have been asked repeatedly to donate original Artwork for charity events/fundraisers. Currently, I must limit this to only 3 per year due to the time involved. Thanks for your understanding.
