Bob Venables is a pastiche artist based in the Isle of Wight.

Bob has worked on many high profile advertising campaigns, including the Profit Hunter ads for Artemis, which have run for over a decade. His influences are as varied as the styles he works in and he enjoys everything from American Lowbrow to the Orientalists, NC Wyeth, Hogarth and Van der Weyden. Primarily a pastiche illustrator, Bob is adept at recreating just about any look – from 1930s propaganda-style posters to old maps, and from neoclassical still lifes to jolly 19th century book illustrations.
