Bob Larkin : Conan #82 Thumbnail Painting




 This is a 3" x 5" comp painting that has been framed out to 14" x 12".

The hardest decision to make was cutting the original board the painting was on so it could be properly framed. But the end result is awesome.

Bob Larkin: Robin Williams Tribute


Here is artwork Bob has done over the years featuring Robin Williams.

Said Bob: "
I thought he was a little crazy & manic way back when. He was a very funny guy! It's 
sad that he wanted to leave this world? "Shazbot". "Na-nu Na-nu". 
Nuff said.

RIP Robin.

Bob Larkin: Conan Cat Cover



In Bob's own words:


"This is the first cat that fell in love with me at Bob's studio. Bob's only cat 
then. He would follow me everywhere in the studio. Then I asked him to pose. This big cat 
would hold a pose with no problem. I was amazed! He posed for me a number of times. As 
soon as I walked into Bob's studio he would jump on my lap and purr & ignore everyone 
else, shooting that day. This cat was my buddy. When he passed away of old age, Bob O. 
never got another cat. I missed him. I wish I could find pics of him posing? He was a 
good boy!"

The cat's name was Jethro. The "Bob" mentioned is Bob Osonovitch, who owned the photo studio where many artists went to get their reference photos done.
