Conversation with Paul Rogers

Monday, February 9, 2009.

His work has included posters, murals, magazine art and logos.  Only recently has he become known for his children’s picture book illustrations with two books that carry musical themes; Jazz A-B-Z: An A to Z Collection of Jazz Portraits with poems by Wynton Marsalis and the warmly illustrated Forever Young (the song by Bob Dylan).  He’s also a contributor to the Just One More Book!! Love of Reading Gallery.

On this edition, Graphic Artist and Illustrator Paul Rogers speaks with Mark about new collaborations with Wynton Marsalis, finessing with a computer and the permanence of children’s books.
