Watercolor portrait of a colorful neighbor walking dogs by Robert Liu-Trujillo.


This is a quick character based on my neighbor who is always out very early walking their dogs and wearing some of the coolest sneakers or sports gear. They always have bright colors and a sports jersey on, too. I have a series of photos in my phone of people in my old neighborhood walking around because my family lived on such a busy street in East Oakland.


Art of Rob Portrait

Here’s a caricature of myself.  I thought about cruising in a futuristic go-kart that hovers. As life turns and bends I’m trying to keep rollin with the changes. Every few years I do a new one to keep my website, blog, etc fresh. You can see the previous portrait here.

Series of characters from the ’80s cult classic film The Last Dragon which blended soul, kung fu, and lots of campy lines: Bruce Leroy, the main protagonist; Laura Charles (played by singer Vanity); and, Sho Nuff. More details in this blog post.
