Hello! My name is Justin Robinson, I am currently the Graphic Design Instructor at Los Osos High School and the Professor of Digital Media and Graphic Design here at Life Pacific University. My hobbies consist of all things art: Graffiti, Photography, and Drawing to name a few. I recently designed and released three installments of my new coloring book series, Mr. Popsicle. (Shameless plug: You can buy yours today on Amazon -- Just search Mr. Popsicle Coloring Book). My passion for art came at a young age when I was first introduced to Graffiti while riding the bus to and from school in Pomona, CA. I was drawn to Graffiti because of the colors, the lines, and the geometric shapes. Since then I have continued to live, breathe, and enjoy Art in both my professional career and personal life. I thank God for my skills and abilities, and for driving my ministry to be rooted in Mentorship. I enjoy connecting with my students at a spiritual level and of course, bringing out the Artist in each of them.

I’m honored to be teaching Principles of Marketing this Fall.  I have a great group of students and am looking forward to seeing them share their creativity and passion for learning.  

I believe God calls us to invest into our communities and give back whenever we can. Each student in my class has been tasked with selecting a real business to represent. That may be a family or friend’s business, a neighborhood business, a church, or even their own business. At the end of the semester, each student will be asked to “gift” their completed marketing plan to their chosen business.  

Personally, my love of marketing centers around communications and more specifically, brand development. I’m excited to share my expertise with my students in hopes of creating a few more marketing “crazies” just like myself. I believe this world is desperate for more Godly marketers who understand how marketing can positively affect change, expand the economy and improve communications, all expressed through the sincere lens of faith and in a way that genuinely honors God.

My bride Tearrah and I have been married for 16 years and the Lord has blessed our union with 7 children; Savannah, Charles II, Matthew, Kneeland II, Adam, Kenneth and TBA (due in early October).

Our entire family are readers; however, I also like to work on my yard because I obsess over my lawn a bit in my limited free time. 

I serve in my local church on the ministerial team and I continue to maintain an active preaching schedule for churches around the nation. 

This summer I finished a 20-month book project with my wife’s 95-year-old grandfather Bishop Matthew Nathaniel Richardson entitled, He Made A Way Out of No Way. Bishop Richardson graduated LPU back in the mid-1950’s. The book is part autobiography, part life lessons, and all inspiration.
