I’m a fifty-something-going-on-fourteen skinny English bloke who paints pictures and draws cartoons, and when I’m not doing it for money and fun, I’m doing it for fun. I live in Kendal, the Gateway to The Lake District, which is in the north west region of the country, with my lovely wife (aka Princess Kitten), my brilliant stepson, two dogs and a cat. (You can see an impression of the missus and the doggies in the 'Grenville Gallery' banner on this site.)
To them, I’m That Mad Old Goat In The Attic, but the outpourings of my fevered imagination rarely overflow into their world. When I’m not in my attic, I’m out either painting murals, or doing lightning cartoons of guests at public and private functions. And more recently, I have started to gravitate towards dog events, because I love drawing funny pictures of people’s pooches. See the relevant sections for samples.
I've recently been doing animations, ranging from simple GIF moving images for websites, to promotional cartoon films, edited to voice tracks. Alas, there is nowhere here to display the moving images, but I will provide links to clients whose websites wriggle and dance with my crazy nonsense.
I’m Robin Grenville Evans when I’m above myself, and think I’ve done a good painting. I’m ‘Evsie’ when I’ve drawn a cartoon of a person or a dog from life, and I’m ‘Bin’ if it’s a saucy comic strip, but there won’t be much of that here. No more about me: I have such a happy life that my personality is completely uninteresting. Just look at the pictures, and see if you can’t find me some work to do.

Princess Kitten is my lovely wife (this doesn't make me Prince Kitten, by the way! I'm known in this house as The Old Goat). She practices calligraphy, and makes beautiful cards, albums and amazing foldy things. Go check it out.
This is where you'll find not only my mural, and the little wooden Morris Delivery Van with the holes for the heads for the funny family photographs, but a world of interesting and delightful things. Only cynical miseries will find fault with this. A nice place to visit and spend time in, whether you like pencils or not!
I've been bumping into these guys a lot at events over the last few years, and recently, they invited me to the studio, and bigged me up, so I think they deserve a link...also, they're all very cool, yet hard-working people.
George East and I go back many years, and I've provided illustrations for many of his books and articles. Please take a look at this if you like a good read, a good think and a good laugh. Good Old George!
The missus and I have opened up a little arts and crafts emporium in Kendal. It's called The Kitten and The Goat. I'm the Goat. At this stage, I'm not in it much, but I'll be getting some of my crazy artwork on the walls soon, and it'll be for sale. Drop by and see Pandy, and check out all her brilliant stuff. Details on the site.
