Bob Brugger was born and raised in Southern California. After high school, he attended San Diego State University where he studied Communication Design. He worked as a graphic designer for several years before heading back to school, this time at Art Center College in Pasadena to pursue his interest in illustration and fine art. After graduation, he began working as a freelance illustrator and spent several years creating images for publishing, editorial, and advertising clients.
When making commercial art shifted to digital platforms Bob moved on to fine art, working mostly with oils and acrylics. For inspiration, he turns to coastal landscapes taken from living most of his life in Southern California beach towns. Airstreams are a common sight in these environments and have become a favorite subject for his paintings.
