Robert Michael Gibson (1938 - September 2010) was a British artist and illustrator who is best known for creating the illustrations & album art that appears in The Beatles' 1967 LP, "The Magical Mystery Tour" released on Parlophone Records.

Along with George Dunning's animated film set to a Beatles' soundtrack, Yellow Submarine, the insert to The Magical Mystery Tour may be considered a classic artifact of psychedelic art, given its allegorical drug references, its bizarre illustrative style, the use of colourful 'bell-bottomed fonts', the "disconnected, " narrative etc.

He died in September 2010 after a long illness.[1]
