Licensed Art Portfolio

Licensed Art Portfolio

by Bob Ostrom Studio


Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, when they need an artist to recreate their licensed characters they are looking for someone who can provide artwork that is flawless and indistinguishable from the original. Early in my career I got my start in publishing by working with licensed characters. This is just a small collection of the many characters I’ve worked with. Most are from the books but a few are from toy and game companies I’ve worked with to help design their packaging .

Working on these types of licensed art projects became second nature for me. Making sure that my style doesn’t show in the final project is not always easy but I take extra time to see that my characters match the view of the original creator. Although I don’t do licensed art exclusively anymore I do still enjoy working with many of the same companies I did when I first began this work many years ago. If you need an artist who understands how to work with licensed art that’s on model and on time, give me a call I’d love to work with you.

  1. Hi there,

    First off I love your ability to adapt your art work and how well you use perspective and expression. I stumbled upon yourself on YouTube with your shark illustrator demo. I am someone trained in animation in the uk whom wishes to illustrate as a living, my question is how do I get into licensed art projects? Your website has inspired me.
    Thanks for your time
