Creeping Tumour by carts
Creeping Tumour
Cover illustration for The Washington Post, Medical Mysteries column about a woman who had a rare case of a slow moving Cancer called Lymphoproliferative Disorder in her legs which she learned of while on vacation.
Kindred Spirits by carts
Kindred Spirits
Illustration for Bay Area News Group about an incredibly heart-warming (and heart-wrenching, in parts) tale of a pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, Sergio Romo, who developed a deeply personal friendship with Ariel Rose Gariano, a young girl fighting cancer. 

They met when she tossed out the first pitch at a Giants game two years ago, and she was so overcome by emotion before the pitch -- embarrassed that her condition wouldn't allow her to get the ball over the plate -- Only Romo, who was to catch the ball, could calm her down and soothe her fears. 

Over the next several months, they kept in regular touch, until ultimately she was rushed to the hospital on the night the Giants won the World Series -- thanks to a Romo relief effort. She wouldn't leave her house until the final pitch of the game, and after a brutal fight, she ultimately passed away a couple months later. 

The story talks about how they're both fighters -- his career has paralleled her valiant fight against cancer. And he still carries all his memories of her with him everywhere.

Intestinal Trouble

Robert Carter
Artist | Professional
Robert Carter is a multiple award-winning full time professional freelance illustrator. Born in St. Albans, England, he moved to Ontario, Canada, at an early age. Robert began his journey into the world of art from the get-go, constantly doodling and sketching anything and everything. Robert went on to study Art and Illustration, graduating from the prestigious Sheridan College School of Art and Animation.

Robert has been working constantly as a professional illustrator for more than a decade now. Combining a strong foundation in portraiture with a unique sense of visual and conceptual problem-solving Robert creates striking, vibrant, and textured illustrations and portraits with subjects ranging from the realistic to the surreal. With a background in traditional oil painting Robert applied those skills to the digital realm and taught himself the digital painting medium, which is now his preferred method of working for it’s speed and flexibility.

Taking a short hiatus from illustration in 2013 Robert went back to Sheridan College, this time to study Computer Animation, graduating with honours.

Robert would like to continue to explore and expand his work, continually striving to improve himself and his art. Robert now lives and works as a professional freelance illustrator in Baden, Ontario, Canada.
