Your personalized family portrait as portrayed by renowned artist Donald Robertson. Includes his book Donald, The Book.

Robertson's drawings and constructions cull from a deep understanding of color and fashion, as much as from his cheeky sense of humor and sharp wit. A father of five, Robertson observes his youngest children's negotiations with the world around them, citing this as inspiration for his art practice, while inviting us into his world by documenting these personal moments on his Instagram feed.

Robertson has received international attention for his interactions with social media and was nominated by the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) as "Instagrammer of the Year." Yet his work remains hyper self-aware, as he uses Instagram like a medium, collecting, cataloging, and reacting to images he finds there. It is no coincidence, then, that Robertson posts images of his resulting work to the same site that inspires so much of it.

A career artist, Robertson has worked in the cosmetics and fashion industry, beginning in Toronto alongside the founders of MAC Cosmetics, and most recently in creative development at the Estee Lauder Companies. He also launched American Marie Claire before redesigning American Glamour with Conde Nast and Hearst.
