Rob Retiano

Originally from Smithtown, NY, Rob, now residing in Cary, NC with his cat Luna, developed a passion for comics from an early age, introduced by his cousin to titles like The Amazing Spider-Man, The Uncanny X-Men, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In 3rd grade, his teacher encouraged him to use comics as a tool to navigate his ADHD and difficulty focusing on novels. Inspired by his mother's fine arts background, Rob delved into art styles, studied animation, worked in tattooing, and pursued graphic design in college. Today, he blends these skills to evolve his unique artistic style.
