Robert Williams is an American hot rod innovator; his famous primed 1932 Ford coupe was the first Rat Rod. He is an automotive designer, whose passion for hot rods goes back to when he was 12 years old and talked his dad into getting him his first car, a 1934 five window Ford coupe. He is also an internationally recognized fine artist, and cartoonist. In the 60’s Robert worked as an art director and artist for hot rod legend and custom car builder Ed “Big Daddy” Roth. He later worked drawing and producing alternative comics for Zap Comix in the Bay Area. In the early 90’s Robert became the co-founder of the underground art magazine Juxtapoz, which is one of the most followed and read art magazines in the USA. Robert Williams and his art and cars are born out of hot rod innovation, California culture and, raw inspiration.
