Robert Lazzaretti started as an intern at GDW. Rob took on illustrating all of the maps because no one else in the art department really enjoyed drawing them. After working on Dangerous Journeys, Traveller, Twilight 2000 and Challenge Magazine for a couple of years, Rob was hired by TSR to join the Cartography Department. Almost immediatly, Rob was put to the task of designing maps for the new Planescape setting. Over the years he has worked on many product lines for TSR. Currently he works as a full time freelance cartographer and lives in Denver, Colorado with his wife and two children.
