In conjunction with the retrospective exhibition of his work, “The Masters Series: Edward Sorel” (on view at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26 Street, 15th floor, through Saturday, November 5), the acclaimed illustrator and political satirist recently spoke to an audience at the SVA Theatre about his decades-long career. Interviewed by artist James McMullan, Sorel discussed the influences and inspirations that helped shape his signature style as well as his career struggles and achievements—sharing anecdotes about his experiences working with some of the nation’s most notable art directors and offering advice for advice for emerging illustrators.
The conversation is now a part of the College’s iTunes U archive, available through Apple’s iTunes software (free download here), along with other video and audio recordings from SVA events and programs.
