Rob Bolster, illustrator
A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Bolster has worked in illustration for more than 20 years. For most of that time, his work has appeared in newspaper and magazine advertisements for major corporations. He produced most of those illustrations using airbrush and watercolor. However, in recent years Bolster has taught himself how to do his work using a computer. Much of his illustration is now created digitally. His books include The Airplane Alphabet Book, The Jet Alphabet Book, Going Lobstering and more.

Stunning full-color paintings illustrate the story of a brother and sister who spend a day aboard a lobstering boat with a lobsterman named Big Joe. The children learn a lot about lobstering and marine life in general by watching and listening to Big Joe as he pulls up his lobster traps, examines the contents, and measures the lobsters. The photographic quality of the realistic illustrations complement and extend the informative nature of the text.
