Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Robert Trujillo

Robert Trujillo

Oakland, CA, USA
Peace, my name is Robert Trujillo. I'm a working artist. My specialties and focus are narrative illustration, creative design for publishing and marketing materials, and public art. I am currently accepting proposals for freelance work and loft apartments with custom smoothie machines.

To be more long winded, i enjoy drawing and painting stories for children, young adults, and grown ups. I love creating custom typography and design for musicians or companies whose mission statement I can align with. And I create public art as a form of creative activism to inspire myself, young artists, and a future generation who have something to say about this world we live in.
