Robert Saywitz is a Bay Area artist whose work ranges from fine art painting, to graphic novel and children’s book illustration, to music, film, theater design, and branding. As an artist, his goal is to create images that tell a story.
Saywitz believes that the creative process of the visual artist closely mirrors that of the musician. Both
adhere to similar laws of rhythm, harmony, tone, and composition—while utilizing these elements to
create original and evocative stories through a particular medium. Just as the musician forms a score through
the arrangement of notes, melodies, and silence, the visual artist composes a piece with the use of form, color, and negative space.
