Robert Deyber Hits His Stride

My friend Robert Deyber has hit his stride. He has been working tirelessly these last couple of years to produce an extensive body of work that is proving to be very popular, and highly sought after. Presently, and most notably, his work was used for the cover design of Tom Petty's new CD Highway Companion. Tom Petty's wife found Bob's work, and quickly became a fan. It wasn't long after that that they contacted Bob to commission him to do a painting for the cover of his upcoming CD. The final creation was a collaborative effort between Bob and Petty, and to quote mr. Petty, "It's the best cover I've ever had".

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers performed here in Atlanta last week, and Bob was kind enough to invite Karen and I to come along. We were allowed back stage, but sadly were not granted an audience with Petty. If you move to Bob's left, and go through a wall, that's where we were. The concert was great. The band was celebrating it's 30th year together, and their performance reflected that unity. It was great!

Bob has also been added to the roster of artists at the Martin Lawrence Gallery. Representatives of Martin Lawrence discovered his work at the Art Expo in New York earlier this year. They were extremely enthusiastic about his paintings, and have spent the last few months preparing his debut. Although his representation with Martin Lawrence has not been publicly announced, Bob's work has been selling at a feverish pace. His official debut will be held at the Dallas, Texas gallery on October 28th.

Congratulations Bob on your success. It's well deserved.

What a fun post; very inspirational for artists to know they are being 'seen'. Congratulations to Robert. (Tom Petty rocks!)
