Welcome to Rob Winfield.com, re-imagined, re-designed, and re-coded with some shiney new bells and whistles.

Excuse the bugs. I'm still polishing and revising the code. So there might be some hiccups (I'm looking at you, mobile devices). Also, for a more rewarding experience, I wouldn't go any smaller than a tablet. This site is meant to be viewed large.

A bit about myself ... professionally, and this is a professional site (mostly), I'm a Flame Artist. That's a fancy title for a high-end compositor and online finisher. I've been doing it for a little over 20 years. It's mostly commercial work. But there's the occassional music video and feature or documentary film. Check some of it out at The Work.

Personally, I do a lot of Photoshop art, drawing from a former career as an art director and graphic designer in the web/multimedia industries. I still enjoy doing all that stuff. It's just more fun when I only have to satisfy myself. Check out some samples in The Gallery.

So that's about it. The site will continue to evolve. New features will be added. New design and art will be integrated. Experiments will be conducted and posted.

And if you ever need a Flame Artist for one of your projects, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Enjoy!

COMING SOON...
My hope is to have this section be a catch-call containter for all my latest artistic endeavors, both personal and professional. That means latest work. But it also means influences and inspirations. I expect to provide updates on a regular basis.

COMING SOON...
The Gallery is going to contain all my personal artwork. I'm currently in the process of designing the pages and navigation. In the meantime, here's a sample of an earlier piece.
