Robert Deas, once best known for his graphic novel adaptations of literary classics such as Macbeth and Pride & Prejudice is now blazing his own trail with his creator led adventure series Troy Trailblazer.

The fan favourite is now a regular strip inside the pages of the Phoenix, the weekly story comic for kids. With two full length adventures under his belt from last year and 2 more planned for 2013 it’s safe to say that Troy is keeping Robert busy. 

Robert has also worked extensively with Medikidz, a publisher specialising in medical comic books that help explain illnesses to children in an accessible way, using a team of young superheroes that travel inside the human body. He has worked on 4 full-length titles for them over the last 3 years and helped to redesign their core characters.

Robert works completely digitally from his home studio in Lincolnshire using a Wacom Cintiq21UX and a combination of Sketchbook Pro, Adobe Photoshop and Google Sketchup.
