The Personalized Presidency

Piece for The Washington Post. Throughout his time in the White House, Obama has turned to his personal story as a default reference and all-purpose governing tool.

Veteran Suicide
There is alot of support while in the military, but once soldiers leave they feel alienated and alone and unable to connect at home. Their support system and familiarity is gone. Veterans are one of the most vulnerable groups for suicide. What can be done to help?

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. He went on to study Art and Illustration, graduating from the prestigious Sheridan College School of Art and Animation.

Working as a professional illustrator for more than a decade, Robert's style combines a strong foundation in portraiture with a unique sense of visual and conceptual problem-solving. He creates striking, vibrant, and textured illustrations and portraits ranging from realistic to surreal.

With a background in traditional oil painting Robert applied those skills to the digital realm, teaching 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 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. He now lives and works as a professional freelance illustrator in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

I have been following your work in awe since I was a teenager, and JUST realized after years and years... that you live only 10 minutes from where my husband and I bought our first house. Neighbours. Small world.
