Royal Mastodon Society is an art space, workshop, research lab, showroom and event venue. The founders, Roy Montibon and Julie Tumblety are both working artists. Their love of exceptional artist loft studio spaces began a decade ago in Downtown Los Angeles, with the San Fernando Building, a century-old Renaissance Revival building in the Old Bank District.

Since moving to New Mexico in 2006, they have purchased and renovated three historic buildings, (circa 1865, 1896, and 1918), into live/work studio spaces. Two of those buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. They also consult with other renovators regarding State and Federal tax credits for historic renovation work.

Roy and Julie recently launched, "five unstructured and unrepentant ruminations on art, vision, signs, symbols, graphic depiction and photographic imagery". This is the first part of a series of online lectures, workshops and symposia titled, Adventures in Art, Photography and Design.

Roy has been an educator for over 24 years, having pioneered courses in computer graphics for creative professionals, (non-engineers in the design and film industries), at UCLA Extension at a time when very few such courses existed anywhere in the U.S. Roy has organized and moderated special programs, including international design syposia, developed curricula and taught Media Arts, Information Architecture, Experience Design and Creative Process courses to over 6,000 students and design professionals.

Some of the photographs on this site may be purchased as prints from Lascaux Ensemble.
