In 1997 he opened up his own company called Maverix studios, also located in San Francisco. In 2000 he went back to being freelance and on the road, working in UK, France, Spain, New Zealand, Korea, etc. He now lives in the US.

His latest self-published art book, Massive Swerve 4, is a new full-length story “pear cider and cigarettes.” This is a story about a hard-living childhood friend of Robert’s, Techno, spans decades and continents, and it is amazing. Techno was the cool kid everyone was in awe of in high school. Robert tells the story of the rest of his life. This is Part One of Two. (Part Two will be published in 2013.)
Robert will also have a selection of original art, boards, and designs, which will be for sale.
