About


Welcome to Travel Bear Bureau, a character art & design firm for properties (Robo Roku and This Creative Life), patterns, graphic design and web development by Renée Rice and Josh DuBose.

Since 2003, we have collaborated on characters for comic books, art, apparel, and accessories. We enjoy creating whimsical characters and designs that bring a smile to your face. Most creations start with Microns, fine liners, pencils on paper, and are finished in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. We also work in mixed-media such as acrylic, watercolor, gouache, collage, printmaking, and encaustic.

In 2009, we started offering graphic design, web development, and business consulting services under the name Lil’ Pancake. We are transitioning those services to be offered under the name Travel Bear Bureau.

Robo Roku has representation in Asia and Latin America, and is available for licensing their unique and colorful universe of characters to bring them to the world.
