" Donald Robertson's CV includes stints as Creative Director at 3 top glossy Magazines (Glamour, Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan), an original founder of MAC Cosmetics and his current position as Head of Creative development for Bobbi Brown Donald Drawbertson - a.k.a. Donald Robertson, isn't as "playful" as his Instagram alter ego might portray. Sure he's used his humour and unique sense of vision of the years - but for big business. He might at first appear as a man who loves making Warhol-esque art with cardboard and gaffer tape in his spare time when looking at the soaring @DonaldDrawbertson Instagram handle, but scratch the service and Google 'Donald Robertson' and discover something altogether different. The 'Drawbertson' aspect of Robertson's brilliant creative mind caught our attention, since he has enjoyed press coverage on Style.com and Vanity Fair for his almost-childish, whimsical and brilliant artworks, all of which are revealed via his Instagram handle. Donald also shared his project - a book dedicated to Kermès and the rest of the Drawberston gang."

We delve deeper into the life of Donald, from his Inspirations to his Ambitions :
-When were you happiest ? "Honestly, I'm happiest when I have a big blank pad in front of me, paint, a fresh pack of sharpies, full rolls of gaffer tape, clean brush water and my iPhone."
-Which living person do you most admire? " I love Wes Anderson - a lot. The man is uncompromising in his artistic vision and has managed to completely charm people commercially and entirely on his terms. The Grand Budapest Hotel opens on my birthday and I am taking the whole family for that one."
-If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? " It would be that I wouldn't post so much on Instagram - I must be incredibly annoying. It's hard for "picture people" to resist. When I was on twitter I never really said anything, but with Instagram I'm trigger-happy."
-What's the next big thing ? "Garbage rockets! My kids and I want to send all the garbage on earth into a black hole in space, it has to be doable. Where is Richard Branson? He could help us make this happen, and then we can all stress less about ruining the environment." 
-What do you consider your greatest achievement ? "My greatest achievement is one of my first ideas as a very young creative director. My friends Frank Angelo and Frank Toskan- the original founders of MAC cosmetics and I launched an aids awareness lipstick campaign called Viva Glam! To this day MAC cosmetics has raised over 3 hundred million dollars in funds. John Demsey, who runs MAC now, has made it even bigger and better year after year. It's my proudest accomplishment." 
-If you could have one superpower, what would it be? If I had one superpower it would be to be able to paint flesh as well as the artist John Currin - he is my superhero! "Paintbrush Man". (Read the whole Interview Here)
