Robert Lee of Methane Studios

Sufjan Stevens Band by Robert Lee

I met Robert last summer at Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee.  I don't know many people (let alone poster artists, who tend to be a rather moody/sulky bunch) that could maintain Robert's level of cheerfulness in that 100-degree-weather, especially after having their tent slashed and robbed.

Aside from being an all-around nice guy, Robert is also one badass illustrator.  His screen prints are incredibly layered and complex and though he uses the computer for some of his work, it always maintains a very hands-on, pencil-and-paintbrush kind of feel.  Originally from Ohio, Robert now works in Atlanta, Georgia at Methane Studios.
