Summer Session 2010: Jonny Ruzzo

July 15, 2010

We asked SVA students and faculty to send in work they were creating over the summer. This is one in an occasional series of Summer Session posts.

BFA Illustration and Cartooning Department student Jonny Ruzzo sent in several illustrations he’s worked on during the summer, along with commentary on each piece and, in one instance, a video of the artist creating the drawing.

This Wind is Choking Me: “This was a submission I did for an exhibition and book called Drawgasmic, showing work from 1,000 young up-and-coming illustrators.”

Dirty Fingers: “I always love drawing the figure, and it’s fun to have the line work down so you can really experiment with filling in the blank space between the lines.”

I Can’t Stop Growing: “I like to use colored pencils because I can start with a light color and work my way up with darker colors. This way I don’t have to worry about making mistakes or erasing, and I find the effect of the different colors visually pleasing.”
