February 4, 2013
An illustration by UArts lecturer and alumnus Jonathan Bartlett BFA '07 (Illustration) graces the cover of this month's issue of 3x3: The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration. The cover story also features an interview and more artwork by the award-winning illustrator.
"Five years after graduating from the University of the Arts, to say I am humbled and honored to be a part of the magazine in this way is an understatement," says Bartlett on his blog.
Tasked with creating a cover with the theme "the education of the illustrator," he adds, "It is no secret that school is a challenge and getting into the business even more so. It forces students to think for themselves, be strong willed, and not be afraid to stand out on their own. This is the general idea I wanted to convey with my eager art student weathering the challenges and holding on tightly to his creative outlet."
In addition to 3x3, the Brooklyn-based freelancer has an impressive list of clients that includes The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Wired, The Atlantic, Stanford Alumni Magazine, Playboy, Money, Fortune, Mother Jones, ESPN, FSG Books For Young Readers, WW Norton Book Publishers, New York City Mass Transit Authority and the Bridge Theatre Company.
Bartlett is the recipient of a 2011 Silver Medal in Advertising from the Society of Illustrators and was named a winner of the Art Directors Club Young Guns 9, also in 2011. He has been recognized by the American Illustration Annual, the Society of Illustrators Annual, Spectrum Fantasy Art Annual, 3x3 Magazine Annual, New England Press Association and CMYK Magazine.
