Meet Modern Love Illustrator and ArtCenter Faculty Brian Rea

How does an illustrator make our internal experiences of love and loss visible? It's a riddle that Illustration faculty member grapples with every week in his playful drawings featured within each installation of the New York Times' popular Modern Love column and podcast. Join us in his studio for an intimate conversation about the emotional openness and artistic courage that informs his life and work.

When the New York Times had an opening in the Op Ed section, I felt that was the only section I was ideally suited for and I found myself putting my feelings and opinions into the work. Now that's what I do each week with the Modern Love column.
