A link to the website of James Romberger:

Romberger has worked for many of the leading cartoon and comic book companies including Marvel.

Romberger works with pastel as his choice of medium.

In this clip we visit a show featuring James Romberger and Rick Prol with our dear friend James Kalm:

Romberger is included in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum.

And to close we have an interview with the artist at a book fair that took place in Brooklyn in 2013. The artist talks about drawing out his ideas for this book.

What I enjoy most about this artist are the unique vantage points used. The artist gives us a tremendous feeling of space in his portrayals of urban life.
