Before he could walk, so states family lore, Robert Squier was drawing dinosaurs. Today, not much has changed; but instead of crayons, he draws dinosaurs on a computer.
Growing up, the portraits and landscapes of Robert’s grandfather, Donald G. Squier, were a constant presence, hanging on nearly every wall of his home. Like many kids, Robert was more keen on comic books, monster movies and Star Wars but a little of his grandfather’s fine art sensibilities must have been passed down… right?
After stints studying art at the University of New Hampshire and Maine College of Art, Robert began working as a commercial illustrator and designer. After too many years of that, Robert changed focus to the children’s publication market. He’s illustrated a boatload of books. Some of his clients include: Highlights Magazine, High Five Magazine, Child’s World, Capstone (Picture Window Books), Grosset and Dunlap, and Children’s Museum of New Hampshire.
