Robert A (big kid at heart) Brubaker is also a multi-media "Jack Of All Trades" who graduated with a Fine Arts Degree from The Ohio State University in 2002 with a primary focus in film and video production.
His skills include professional medium format and digital photography, videography, cinematography, 2D and 3D animation, motion graphics, visual effects, web design and illustration.
2010 - Robert officially launched Resonant Image Studios, an independent film and video production company that will also produce graphic novels, children's stories, interactive games and web design. Film productions will be based on original screenplays and stories created in-house and through licensed works.
After a lot of prayer and soul searching, Robert and his lovely wife Sherry decided to start Gilded Magic Publishing in 2009 in an attempt to offer readers a unique blend of original high-quality stories and immersive "eye-catching" graphics.
Collaborating with Sherry K. Brubaker, Robert illustrated Sherry's first picture book entitled Cup Of Glitter which out of eleven countries was recognized as an Award-Winning Finalist in the 2011 International Book Awards and a USA Best Books 2011 Award-Winning Finalist.
"Sherry and I are absolutely thrilled to receive this honor! Hopefully our customers will have as much fun with Dart and Glitter as I had in illustrating their story. Congratulations Sherry! Thanks for bringing me along on this wonderful, color-filled journey!"
