Edel Rodriguez was born in Havana, Cuba in 1971. He majored in painting at Pratt Institute (BFA) and Hunter College (MFA). He has worked on picture books, covers for novels, stamps for the U.S. Postal Service, and on posters for films and Broadway shows. He is a regular contributor to The New Yorker magazine and was an art director at TIME magazine for over a decade.

He documents his creative process on his blog and Facebook page; there’s a wealth of inspiring images to look at and learn from. Also, I enjoy following updates on his work, photos of events and sketches from his travels.
