About me

Hi, my name is Roberto Gonzalez,  I am Mexican-Canadian freelance illustrator based in Calgary, AB.

I have a major in Graphic Design and Illustration and have done all kinds of illustration throughout my career.

I am now focusing on children’s illustration. I'm an awarded children's book Illustrator with over 20 published picture books, and an active member of the SCBWI. You won't ever be disappointed working with me. You're not just getting a dedicated artist; you're getting someone truly passionate about his work. I’ve had the chance of work with many clients from all over the world.
I enjoy the challenge of creating, because each project undertaken is unique. I am always open to new projects and creative opportunities, so feel free to contact me at roberto@rogolart.com

This was my first foray into the kids book publishing world and was quite anxious about the process. After searching and searching, I found Rob. He was patient, extremely tolerant and gave his take on what I wanted when needed. I was so picky I would have been annoyed with me! Rob man thank you thank you thank you.

Sharon Clark  | Research Assistant/Lab Manager at University of Calgary

Roberto Gonzalez's work is fantastic! I have hired him to illustrate 4 children's books, and to do other projects. His illustrations are amazing and he is always very professional. He listens to what I want and produces the artwork well and in a timely fashion. We've worked together for over 2 years now - and I highly recommend him! Recently, one book we did together "The Caterpillar That Learned to Fly" won a NABE Pinnacle Achievement Award for Best Book in the category of Children's Educational. The illustrations would definitely have had a huge part in this.
