About me & my work:
I am a painter, author, and principal of rosenworld, a design, illustration and animation studio. Actually there is no studio; I usually work alone, and rosenworld doesn’t exist. In spite of this, rosenworld.com was launched in 1995. I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design, and have taught at Pratt Institute, Parsons School of Design, and School of Visual Arts.
My most recent book is titled “all the wrong people have self-esteem” published by Bloomsbury. It is an inappropriate book for young ladies, and frankly, anybody else. My children’s book, And To Name But Just a Few: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue was published by Blue Apple. My New York Notebook, published by Chronicle, is a hyperillustrated, overdesigned NYC guidebook, sketchbook, and blank book all mushed up together. Also, I have collaborated with author and humorist David Sedaris on an animated project: “David’s Diary” that has been published as an app for iPad, iPhone and Android. I teach an popular workshop called “How to make Mistakes on Purpose” … and I speak at conferences. I can claim to have won all the usual awards.
I divide my time between Sweden and New York City (I can speak Swedish like a native New Yorker), and have had solo exhibitions at Galerie Pixi in Paris, among others. I've done many drawings for The New Yorker magazine, The New York Times, and other fine publications. I once appeared as “Woman” on “The Sopranos”, a role I was born to play.
