Robert Ellis (sometimes credited as Rob Ellis) was one of the very first Big Idea animators hired to work on VeggieTales. He worked on the show from 1993 to 2002, ending his job working on the franchise as an additional animator for the film Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie. Afterwards, we went on to be a musician for the documentary, P.J. Harvey on Tour: Please Leave Quietly.
During the mid-90s, aside from animation, he also helped out with modeling.
