Simon roberts : Automotive artist

James Bond checked the rearview mirror of his Aston Martin to see a car bearing down on him as he negotiated a hairpin bend. From that moment on, an 11-year-old Simon Roberts was on the edge of his cinema seat..

Inspired by these cinematographic moments I went on to work as a technical illustrator in Germany for some of the biggest names in the automotive industry; Audi, BMW, Jaguar and Land Rover. 

From there I moved on to become an illustrator working for advertising agencies in Germany, Austria and the UK. More recently I have specialised in storyboard and concepts visuals for commercials, TV and movies. Which is why dramatic lighting and atmosphere are always a key part of my art. 

I now live and work in the South of France with my wife Monica.
