A B O U T
Bobby Tyning has always been fiddling with the visual arts, starting way, way back when he made a travel brochure for the moon of Endor at 6 years old. Propelled by a love of drawing, punk rock, hip hop, cartoons, pop culture, and plenty of unfocused energy, he naturally gravitated to the illicit world of graffiti as a teenager. At a student newspaper he was indoctrinated to desktop publishing and the graphic arts, which ultimately saved him from the clutches of hooliganism that ran rampant in Bakersfield, CA in the 1990s.
Relocating to Phoenix, AZ to go to art school, Bobby graduated as salutatorian, with an associate's degree in visual communications, an associate's of occupational studies in animation, and a bachelor's degree in graphic design. Since 2001 he's been hard at work as an in-house designer creating books & manuals, promotional pieces, signage, logos, and everything in-between. When not at his day job he works on little projects to keep himself sharp, sometimes even for money(!), but usually just for fun. He likes to do illustrative, iconic work, and loves it when a client listens to what he has to say.
Bobby is happily married to his lovely wife Julia, a knockout designer in her own right. They both reside in North Phoenix with a black cat named Daggers. Their many adventures are poorly updated at their blog, funwithjubby.com.
