ROBERT CAMPBELL (1951-2004) was born in Marshall, Texas. He called his artistic style “Real Fantasy” to emphasize the fantastic in his take on Fantastic Realism. He came to Los Angeles in 1975, where he showed in art galleries and worked as a scenic painter in the theater and movie business. His film credits include Echo Park (1985) and Bagdad Cafe (1987). He also worked on rock videos for Tom Petty, Cyndi Lauper, Tori Amos, Nirvana, and Kenny Loggins (he can be seen playing the painter in “Vox Humana”).
His comics were his last artworks before he turned to poetry as a result of losing his eyesight to diabetes around 2000. He intended these comics to be a single graphic novel, but despite the 272 pages in this book, there remain many unfinished parts. His magical storytelling and visuals sustain this fantasy version of an autobiography anyway.
