My Name is Robert Tatum and I was born in Inglewood, California waaaay back in 1963 and then I was born again in San Antonio, Texas in 1993. I studied design and marketing at Pasadena College of Art and Design. Back when I lived in LA, I worked at a few agencies like Doyle Dane & Bernbach as well as Dancer, Fitzgerald, Sample and HRLA (Disney) for a short while.
In 1985, I started a skate/street line called LA Bronx and got to represent some graffiti artists such as Risk, Realm and Mear One. After moving on in 1990, to Grand Cayman to produce art for the Caribbean Tourist Council and selling some art in Jamaica for about a year, I then came to Texas in 1992 and have been here ever since.
I started painting and drawing when i was around 5 and never stopped. Art is my love and i like to mix things up. It is about not taking things so seriously and i like to let people interpret their own meanings into what i produce. T-shirts are an extension of my art. The designs you see on this website are just a few of the icons that i have developed over the years.
I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to look at my work. I thought maybe i would share a little of my history with you. Thanks for taking the time to read it if you made it to this last sentence!
