Drawing on his numerous skills as an illustrator, screenwriter, storyboard artist and more, Rob Prior’s career spans over thirty years of gaming, comics, film, and television. Recognized as one of the top intellectual property creators by his peers, Rob is known for creating incredibly detailed worlds, characters and stories that enthrall audiences and captivate imaginations in both his pop art and fine art creations.
A staple of the comic con scene, it’s easy to find Rob — look for the big crowd watching a possessed man paint with both hands, often with his eyes closed. Rob’s art has traveled far and wide, and his works have been exhibited in museums and galleries across the U. S., Europe and Asia. His live painting sessions are a mesmerizing combination of art, entertainment, and excitement, and he’s painted for audiences of hundreds and of thousands.
As a comic book artist, Rob has worked with Marvel, D. C., Todd McFarlane, Kevin Eastman and Image Comics, to name a few, with his most notable credits on Star Wars: the Force Awakens, Terminator, Deep Space 9, Game of Thrones and Heavy Metal. As a leading storyboard artist, he has provided storyboards for advertising campaigns such as Budweiser and Nikon, as well as for the gaming industry, for Titlist, 2K Games, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Rob also created all the storyboards and animatics for the video games Ghost Rider and The Darkness. Rob’s illustrations have appeared as cover art and interior art material for Steve Jackson Games, TSR (Dungeons and Dragons), Wizards of The Coast, Battle of The Lords of The 23rd Century, and many others.
When Rob is not in the studio or on the road painting, he is a sought-after director and producer of films and music videos. He makes his home in southern California with his wife and family.
