What makes Tom Robb`s drawings of our favorite musicians and rockstars a bit different? Tom Robb has been a bodyguard for some of the most popular musicians and rock stars for over 35 years. Touring with Bands like Metallica, Robert Plant, Green Day, Linkin Park, Creed, System of a Down, Twenty One Pilots, Kanye West, and many more gives him a special insight and different view of these popular singers.
Traveling to over 85 countries with music tours has left little time to draw his favorite subjects, but during his rare time off he is always challenging himself to catch the raw emotion and pure intensity he sees and feels nightly by these unique artists.
Creativity runs in Tom Robb’s family. His older brother, Dave Robb, (a great artist in his own right) has had great success as the Head Designer of BMW motorcycles in Munich, Germany for over 30 years. His youngest brother, Doug Robb, is the lead singer for the band Hoobastank and is quite creative and artistic himself and has been a subject of Tom`s drawings in the past.
Tom Robb’s art is owned by many celebrities including James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett of Metallica, Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and Sensational Space Shifters, David Grohl of Foo Fighters, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt of Green Day, Doug Robb of Hoobastank, Bo Jackson of the NFL and MLB, and Shaquille O`Neal of the NBA.
“I do want to say my experience with Miller Imaging is one of the reasons I started getting serious about my art again. The process was so seamless and easy. Every question and concern I had was addressed quickly and professionally. I was learning on the go and Madison`s patience and understanding (on designing his one-sheet) made the whole learning process become a passion project. I have not had that experience in the past and I wouldn’t go anywhere else at this point.”
