Hello there. My name is Robert Luckett and I am a freelance creative mercenary for hire. Coining the term ‘illust-o-writer’, I’ve worked in many different fields across the creative industries. I currently reside in Leeds (UK) with my long-time partner Rachel Connor and our feisty cat Ramona.

Beginning my creative career, I was the writer and illustrator of a webcomic in the early 00’s. Having a passion for videogames since the age of six-years old and my first Commodore 64, it was a surprise to nobody that my degree at Lincoln University (Hull campus) was a BA Hons in Games Design where I graduated with a 2:1 in 2006. While there I also self-taught myself animation skills with which I created a full animated pilot based on my old webcomic; Waffle X.

Working in London for a period, I worked at a couple of videogame production houses, and worked as a 2D animator and game designer on a Flash web-game project or two. I even found myself thrust into the role of producer on a delayed/doomed project I managed to boot out the door. It was a thankless job with long hours and little accountability with studio owners and top managers. Commuting for four hours a day was also super-lame. I shortly thereafter moved to Leeds and created the perfect in-home office environment (it’s a geek-cave, a heavenly geek cave), worked freelance design, and subsequently as an ad copywriter during the daily deal boom. Deadlines would often come in the form of “in the next 10 minutes” as I assumed the role of an “Emergency ‘Code Red’ Writer”. This sounds dramatic, but when you’re writing about the fifth promotional Zumba class that day it’s hard to create unique intrigue.

In present day, I’ve found myself drawn back to my creative roots. Working with Rachel, I’ve co-written a set of graphic novels based on the Cartoon Network property Regular Show, and aim to get back into webcomics and short animation with some new and original properties of my own devising. I've also worked as a creative planner on an upcoming novel series, and helped co-develop an original comicbook series going currently through pitching. Some may say I’m a jack of all creative trades but they’d be wrong. My name is Robert.

Daily Deals Work

Working for a leading daily deal website, I wrote over 1600 articles of 130 word ad copy. Often writing to dramatically short deadlines, these had to be suitable for email marketing and covered everything from fish pedicures to hotel and activity packages.

Assorted Writing Work

Assorted work ranging from the co-writing the script of a Regular Show Original Graphic novel to in-depth videogame critique and articles. Witty or clincally precise, the flavour of my words is filled with variety.

Waffle X Pilot

A 10 minute fully animated and voiced pilot episode of a cartoon based around the adventure of a teenage boy and a sentient potato waffle. Achieved two daily features on Newgrounds.com.

Assorted Illustration

A choice collection of artpieces for your peepers including comic work, character design, fanart, article headers, and more. I work almost exclusively in digital illustration in a wide range of software.

Assorted Design Work

Work from my more graphic design based projects with a focus on clearly communicated information. Flyers, prints, logo design, T-shirt design and more examples await your eager eyes.


A duo of levels created in LittleBigPlanet that achieved acclaim for their visual design, humour, and boss encounters. An exercise in alternative thinking to get working, they were also featured by the developer MediaMolecule.

Assorted Pixel-Art/Animations

Roll up, roll up: here be examples of my work in spriting for a few personal video projects, custom emoticons, as well as the odd minature sized fan animation or two as well.


Look at how happy that octopus royalty over there is with his material wealth! It just so happens I have materials of my own to sell you such as copies of BUMSTORM.
