He later moved to Philadelphia to work for N.W. Ayer & Co. During World War One he enlisted in the Red Cross as a medic. After the war he returned to his job at Ayer. Riggs later became a freelance artist doing magazine illustrations, as well as paintings and lithographs for advertising purposes. Riggs taught at the Philadelphia College of Art, now the University of the Arts. His last great work was on American Indian mythology. "...Riggs traversed both applied and fine arts and, in the end, produced a distinctive body of work remarkable for its depth and stylistic range." (Albert Gold. The Childlike Genius of Robert Riggs.)
