Memories, Musings and Mayhem of a Creative Career
Welcome to RobertArtWriter.com
Here you will find my recollections of my career at Filmation Studios in the 1980s. Peruse the links on the left which are in chronological order starting with “Breaking In” in 1981. Slower than I wish, I am working my way through the 2nd season of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
What About Rob?
I am a storyteller.
I work in various media crafting compelling experiences to communicate ideas, visions, dreams and plans.
I have written screenplays for animated television series, visualized other writers' scripts as storyboards to direct animation production, conceptualized toy ideas on paper in brainstorming sessions in real time, and animated Ray Stevens in his music video "The Streak" (some things should not be seen in live action).
I have worked with creative teams crafting e-learning experiences communicating clients' objectives anchored in dramatized narratives to achieve optimum engagement and retention.
A while back, I was a Concept Artist at Video Gaming Technologies, Inc., an Aristocrat company. In addition to game and machine concepts, I created designs for Marketing and Communication, managed the digital signage, produced video for internal use, and animated game trailers for promotions.

This caricature of me was created by Pedro Figue for the cover of cereal: geek #3, a magazine devoted to animation of the 1980s (shameless plug – I am a contributor to the magazine). You can find me stuck between two turtles in the second row. This magazine is a labor of love published by James Eatock in London, UK. There are no ads, just 100 pages of Eighties animation goodness.
