Started drawing comics while at Glasgow School of Art to save having to get a real job at age 17 for Glasgow Underground comic "Electric Soup" alongside the now legendary Frank Quitely.
Along with Frank, Robbie Morrison and others, produced some comic strips and went off to UKCAC in London where they were bought by Dark Horse. The samples stirred up interest from others and soon Rob was approached by DC and Fleetway also, drawing Shimura for The Megazine and Lobo for DC.
After more comics, Rob was approached to work for Stan Lee on his new and still unpublished "Stan Lee's Excelsior Line" on the lead book "Omega" written by Kurt Busiek.
After almost 2 years of work on it, the line was cancelled and the next day, Rob moved into storyboarding.
Jumping between storyboarding and comics over the next few years, frustration grew as due to the state of the comics industry at the time, many books were being cancelled before any of Rob's work came out. His last US strip work for Dark Horse on Randy Bowen's Decapitator before moving from Scotland to North America and working full time as a storyboard and concept artist.
Rob has worked on such films as Pacific Rim for Guillermo del Toro, The Thing(2011), Hairspray, Four Brothers, Land of the Dead with George Romero and many many more.
He's thinking about doing some comics again one day. Maybe,
