|GARY ROBERTS is an artist / illustrator with a lifetime of experience.
And we don't mean just in art.
Born on 22 Feb. 1955 in Hialeah, Florida, USA to mother Carole Anne and father Earl Phillips, he was adopted by his grandparents and given the name Roberts.
Artistic ability runs in both families, as both his mother and grandfather could paint both portrait and commercial work. But Gary is the only one to pursue this talent on a professional level.
He has had little or no formal art education but for a brief attendance at the University of Miami Art School when he was in the third grade. His talent was clearly visible by this time. But all of his styles and techniques are totally self-taught.
Gary Roberts has led an interresting life.
As a teenager, three things dominated his attention. Teenage girls, hard
rock guitar, and motocross motorcycle racing. All three were pursued with
reckless abandon. His rock guitar playing led to many bands and much travel
over the next 25 years, but the elusive hit record never materialized
and that dream fell aside. Motocross led into drag racing and fast street
motorcycles, and ultimately road racing. To this day he keeps a garage
full of vintage Japanese motorcycles
In the '80s, his attentions and creativity turned to film and video, and began his career as a professional artist. Doing storyboards and key scene illustrations for directors, set designs, and hands on art directing several feature films and music videos honed his skills. He has worked on projects for Warner Bros., Universal, Disney, General Motors, IBM, and others. He has generated art and sets from notebook size to the sides of trucks and buildings.
One thing was in the background however, all this time.Erotic Art. Bondage.
Roberts has always drawn young pretty girls in bondage and rape scenes.
Quite litterally, since he knew what girls were. But it has only been
since the early '90s that he decided to unveil the real inner self. His
first works in this genre'appeared in publications by Bon-Vue, followed
by a comic series in Goddess Dianna Vesta's "Attitude" magazine,
several story illustrations in the BDSM swinger mag "Get Kinky".
At this same time, he decided to apply his film and video experience to
bondage, and worked with "Scarry Video" for a year, shooting
several videos and even starring as a home invader in one. Limited success
in these ventures led to a retreat from art for several years, in which
time he pursued
October 1999 changed everything. Roberts buys his first computer and
gets online. He discovers the open forum of newsgroups. he decides to
post his bondage art on the web, and response is overwhelming. As they
say, the rest is
