Bob broke in at Marvel Comics in 1992 as a professional inker on Warlock and the Infinity Watch series which led to numerous projects at Marvel for the next decade straight like Guardians Of The Galaxy, Star Trek: DS9 and later Annihilation: Congest-Quasar and Heroes for Hire. Most significant was his 3 years of work as inker/storyteller with Priest and Sal Velluto on Marvel’s Black Panther from 1999-2002. This highly-acclaimed series won Bob two Squiddy Awards for “Best Inker” (2001-2002) along with one for “Best Creative Team” (2002). Together with Sal they were included in the Heroes 911 tribute book (Marvel), Bloodshot (Acclaim), JSA, Aquaman (DC), Captain Gravity and the Power of the Vril (Penny-Farthing Press), Archer & Armstrong: First Impressions (Valiant), The Phantom/Fantoman (Egmont), The Guardian Project w/ Stan Lee (Guardian Media) and recently on the Kingstone Bible (Kingstone Media). With other collaborators, Bob has also inked assignments like Vampirella: Revelations (Harris), A Nightmare on Elm Street (Wildstorm), Star Trek: The Last Generation (IDW) and recently as of yet unpublished work for Ravesnake Media.
Bob has also acted as a columnist for his inker-centric “Inkblots” column for Sketch Magazine and First Comics News from 2007-2010. This led to his founding of the non-profit Inkwell Awards in 2008 where he acts as director and treasurer. He co-created the company spokes-model Ms. Inkwell. As the only organization/advocacy of it’s kind on the planet it promotes and educates about the oft-misunderstood art form of inking and recognizes the best artists of inking in the field. Almost 100% of funds raised go to the non-profit. They are celebrating their ten year anniversary in 2018.
