Robert Bender, Illustrator
Robert Bender graduated with honors from Syracuse University where he
studied illustration. He moved to New York City and worked as an
illustrator of magazines and newspapers for six years. He continued to
experiment with new techniques, and he enjoyed illustrating a children's
story written by his girlfriend, Christina, who later became his wife.
Robert Bender experimented with various painting methods, and he uses
stencil brushes to apply vinyl paint to acetate, which is backed with
black paper. His artwork has darkly outlined images filled with softly
blended colors. He lives on a farm in Stillwater, Pennsylvania, where he
can hear lots of "moo's" and "moo, A-H-H-H-CHOO's."
