Robert, Illustrator Meganck

Robert Meganck’s clever, often humorous drawings have brightened Christine Ennulat’s “Natives” stories for years. When you see Robert’s imaginative take on, say, grackles, beavers or the state’s catfish species, you want to read the story—and that may be the best compliment one can pay an illustrator.

A Michigan native, Meganck earned a BFA from the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills (Michigan). He’s now a professor of illustration, graphic design and digital imaging at Virginia Commonwealth University and also president of Communication Design Inc. He’s received more than 300 regional, national and international awards over the course of his career, and his clients have included the Washington Post, the Harvard Business Review, Newsweek and Prentiss Hall publishing, among others. As Meganck puts it, “Illustration is drawing with a point—a point of view.”
