This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Robert MacKenzie grew up in San Mateo, California, and has settled in New York City. In 1998, he graduated from San Jose State University with a degree in Illustration and has worked as a Concept, Visual Development and ColorKey artist at Lucasfilm, PDI Dreamworks and Blue Sky Studios on movies including: Hulk, Shrek 2 , and  Ice Age 2.  He has also illustrated children's books.

His first comic can be seen in Out of Picture 1, a project he worked on with some of his friends at Blue Sky Studios. The illustrations were done in gouache on Strathmore 500 series illustration board.

Of using gouache, he wrote: "Typically when I use gouache, I will treat it like water colour in the beginning of a painting. In fact, I often use the two mediums inter-changeably. I usually start of painting very light and use a lot of water. I am somewhat reckless in applying paint in the beginning, however I try to be careful in preserving the white of the paper for my brightest highlights. While the pools begin to dry, I try to pay attention to the edges, to make sure that they dry the way I want them to. In this early stage I try not to blend too much with my brush. I like to tilt my board to allow the pools colors to run into each other. By allowing the colors to mix together, rather than blending them with a brush, I can preserve the intensity of the colors. As I get further into a painting I will tend to paint more opaque (with more pure pigment) and with less water.
