Profile for Roderick De Jesus

Although I studied Illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL my real education began at five when given a stack of comics by my godfather. From that point on I have amassed a wealth of influence from Kirby to Wyeth; from the 90s comic boom to the Impressionists.I've since shown everywhere in Chicago from its prestigious River North Art Disctrict to Pilsen and Wicker Park/ Bucktown neighborhoods. I've had a hand in creating posters for Geopolis Theater and a set of greeting cards for Darling Series productions.
