Rob Will lives in a 6 x 10 foot solitary cell for up to 23 hours a day, enduring conditions of intense loneliness and deprivation. He is allowed one hour per day for recreation, in a larger indoor or outdoor cage, where he cannot see the sky or feel the sun. He has no access to the internet or television. His only escape is radio, books, and letters from friends on the outside. It is common for death row inmates to lose hope altogether but despite the depravity of inhumane conditions on death row, Rob has remained very positive about his chances of achieving justice.
During his incarceration, he has educated himself on a wide range of subjects, expanded his spirituality, and broadened his creative horizon. Rob has become a certified yoga instructor, published writer, and a skilled artist. Rob creates extraordinary artwork given limited supplies Texas Death Row provides. His artwork has been displayed in Texas, Germany, the United Kingdom, and, most recently, New York City in two solo installations produced by George Del Barrio & Jason Flom.
He is also certified in paralegal studies and hopes to one day help fix the system that wrongfully convicted him so that other people do not experience the same horror he has endured. Rob has been failed at every stage of his legal process. It is essential for awareness to be raised for this miscarriage of justice as he comes to the end of his appeals process. After being wrongfully convicted and surviving the most inhumane conditions possible, please help us achieve justice and bring Rob home
