Robert (Bob) Filbey (1946- ) grew up in Pomona California, won 2nd place for his clay model of the One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater contest from a LA radio station at the age of 12, losing to a commercial artist. He illustrated his grammar school and Junior High School newspaper mastheads, and designed his high school mascot while writing and illustrating a book detailing the origin of the moon from the Pacific Ocean. He attended Pomona College, practiced painting and sculpture under Salvatore Grippi and John Mason with fellow classmates Chris Burden, Michael Brewster, James Turrell, Robin Rector Krupp, Charles Plotkin, Mary Bennett, and Mark Wilson. He undertook more painting studies at UCSB graduate school while illustrating college text books there and at NYU graduate school before moving off the grid to a remote forest in Northern California (near Old Harris). He produced an X-rated comic book, and when a friend colored their copy, he got the idea for a coloring contest using his Summer Solstice invitations which has been going on for 52 years. He also did a series of greeting cards, continued illustrating college textbooks, mostly medical, and took on commercial illustration work of logos, T-shirts, ads, political cartoons, and magazine articles written for the Whole Earth Catalogue and other art periodicals along with occasional fine art. When Apple Corp offered grants for artists, he wrote and received a reply from Neil Aspinall just as Apple suspended the grants. He also dabbled in animation, doing some ads for Estes Rockets and Concept Films and his own experimental animated films. He practiced life drawing and painting with Peter Holbrook, Frank Cieciorka, Karen Horn, Jim McVicker, and George Van Hook during the early 1980's. He produced and illustrated the BIGFOOT Country Touring Map of Northern California before moving to Blue Lake, CA. There he did more logos, posters, political cartoons, T-shirts, murals, and commercial illustration for magazine and newspaper ads, Sun Frost, Tomas Jewelry, and record and CD covers while doing fine art on the side. He attended HSU graduate art school and learned photography from Ellen Land-Weber and printmaking under Bill Anderson and Michael Bravo. He has worked in various media (pencil and conte crayon, ink, oil, acrylic, gouche, and watercolor painting, lithography, serigraphy, etching, monoprinting, collage, assemblages, and sculpture) and still produces an occasional piece today. He has only had 3 shows during his career, the first sold out but the latter two sold poorly. His work is represented in many private collections around the country and in England. It is eclectic in subject matter, some as historical illustration and others as dreamlike fantasy visions or loose free strokes. His artwork is frequently on eBay auctions, and you can see samples of his fine art portfolio and cartooning at filbeyart.store.
