About Rob


I was born and raised in Chicago. I’m a self taught artist currently residing in Tampa, FL. I work as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. For the past 16 years, I’ve worked in the comic book industry as a digital colorist and painter, most recently working for Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse comics. After discovering punk rock during the early 80’s, I designed album covers, t-shirts and flyers for various punk bands in Chicago. This led to abundant work in the 90’s as a silkscreen concert poster artist, supplying hand crafted promotional posters for bands and venues all over the USA. I used to be known as “Trucker” in the rock poster world. You can check out my poster work in the best selling book, The Art of Modern Rock.

For the past 3 years, I’ve been exhibiting my fine art work in numerous galleries across the US. Just like the comic book stories that occupied me as a youth, I view the shrinking world and the society around me as an ever-growing battle between good and evil. I creates imagery that encompasses my own journey of faith while enabling me to take a break from the turmoil of day-to-day life and reconnect with the dreamer and cartoon & comic book fanatic I was as a child.

genius.

Creative and Originality flows through this guys soul and pours out his heart in everything he does. Schwager is an amazing multi-talented artist.

I'm in total love with Rob's bomber panels. Each one is fan-tas-tic. I'm glad to see him featured, he deserves it.

Love your work Rob. I enjoy the depth and texture. It is inpirational

Great artist, great guy, great name. Also, buy stuff from him. He'll paint you on the side of a downed plane for a price. Who else hooks it up like that?

Rob is one of the greatest Artists alive.

This guy is not only a GREAT artist, but is helpful to other artists. It is one thing to produce GREAT art, it is another to contribute to the artists "scene". This guy is the real deal.

rob is the man, his skills are fanfriggintastic

Rob, you are one of a kind. Great work as always.

We need to see you work on more products to the masses.

Rob is a killer artist and an all round good guy. Am saving my pennies so I can cop a bomber panel off him.
