Robert Mills was born and raised in Southern California. He can always remember drawing even as young as being in the highchair. As with all kids, it started with drawings of comic heroes and cartoon characters. Then in high school, that changed evolving into women. His high school art teacher was an important influence, said Robert. “My teacher would have a large amount of books and magazines for reference. I’d go through the fashion magazines and that’s when I started to draw women.” That is also when he discovered the airbrush. From that point, it was onto college where Robert continued to refine his skills. During college, he was involved with several shows including having a one man show.

Robert’s interest in pin-up started about ten years ago with an attendance to a Glamourcon show. “I’m fascinated with drawing women’s faces which led to pin-up. It’s usually a face, hair, pose, body or concept, which will inspire me to start an illustration,” says Robert. “I work fairly large (about lifesize) and it’s a compliment when someone sees a drawing and they say ‘That’s so & so,’ ” he adds. He has been commissioned by several Playboy models and pro-team cheerleaders to do illustrations for them. Right now, Robert’s interests are only in glamour and pin-up art.
