Why It Helps To Play Hockey With A Kick-Ass Artist


What do we have in common with the The Harvard Business Review, The Atlantic, and Playboy Magazine? Well, we’re all clients of Mr. Jonathan Bartlett, a New York based illustrator who deals in multi-media metaphors and who, from time to time, can score a pretty nice goal off the wing.

We approached Jonathan last year to do the artwork for The Swearing Jar, but alas, the recent SVA grad was busy juggling a growing client list and a gig at the New York Times (Assistant Art Editor for the Op-Ed Page or something important like that). Fortunately, in keeping with the old birds of a feather dictum, Jonathan set us up with Clay Rodery, a fellow SVA grad and a fine artist in his own right.

This year, however, there was no shaking us. We caught Jonathan early and commissioned him to provide the art for SIA and for our summer production of Greenland. Of course, it didn’t hurt that Co-Artistic Producer Dustin Olson plays goal for both of Jonathan’s street-hockey teams (you never want to upset your last line of defense). Whatever his reasons for coming aboard, we’re pretty thrilled to have him.

Below are a few of our favorite Bartletts. For Jonathan’s full portfolio, please visit seejbdraw.com.
