Jody Rosen Portrait

The above portrait of Jody Rosen was done quite a few months back for  an illustration symposium in Nov. ’09 titled “Moving Pictures”. Presented by the Parsons  Illustration Department, and moderated by illustrator/author/Parsons Prof.  Lauren Redniss.  The symposium focused on  ideas of motion in illustration, and looking beyond animation to  some unexpected ways  motion figures in illustration. The symposium featured presentations by Richard McGuire, Joel Smith,  Lauren Redniss, Jody Rosen.

I put together a display in the illustration dept. as  a teaser  to the symposium and included was this portrait  of Jody as a map of London.   His presentation was of  a new book he’s working on: The Knowledge, about London, cartography, and taxi drivers.
