Robert Schamberger wanted to be a comic book artist but wasn’t setting the world on fire. So he decided to branch out into other types of art — especially painting. Despite making gallery sales, he still hadn’t found his niche.
After some thought Schamberger decided to combine his love of art with his love of professional wrestling. He started doing paintings of professional wrestlers. A successful Kickstarter followed. Then within a year, the WWE contacted Schamberger and brought him on board as their resident artist. Schamberger’s story is an inspiring one in that he worked to figure out how to make his love of art become his career.
