Springtime For Igor

Some people are so extraordinary that anything they do will amaze in an unexpected way.

Jonathan Rosen's work may first catch your eye for its gritty line work and dystopian appendages -men and women bound and tethered, limbs exchanged for mechanical parts.

Jesse Gordon once asked the mild manner artist why he drew so many characters with things sticking out of them. The response: it came from when he first saw someone using a Walkman.

Now that we've changed seasons, here's a little motion graphics loop, "Springtime For Igor" Jonathan created from a day in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.

The video doesn't seem to be working... I get an Error 404, but maybe that's just me.

Thanks! That was wonderfully jarring (as I'm about to fall asleep on my keyboard) and at the same time terrifying! I'm not sure I'll ever want to go to the Botanical Gardens now.
