Robert Beltran was born on October 31st 1965 in Castro Valley Ca. I have been illustrating ever since I could hold a pencil, I would watch cartoons, sci-fi movies and read comics. Then I would draw them in my own unique way.Growing up in the bay area in my teen years I learned how to do murals and being a Mexican-American, I would do a lot of Chicano art. My heart though longed for sci and comics, loved that genre so much that I just started doing sci-fi fantasy. Years later I went to school and took my art to the next level. I have been drawing for over 30 years now, you would think that I would've grown up, but I still have the little kid in that loves all those great genres, Lord of the Rings, Batman and even Saturday morning cartoons. I love the fact that I can share my artwork with the world now!! Today I am a freelance graphic artist and work in different fields, I love what I do and have a passion for art.
