Rest in Peace, Bob

Bob at the Society of Illustrators

Longtime Parsons Illustration Faculty member Bob Levering died very early on April 22nd at St Luke’s Hospital.

You can see a few of his illustrations here.

Bob was a wonderful artist, an important mentor, and a sweet, generous soul.

He will be missed by those of us at Parsons and by the artist community he was a part of for so many years.

At a later date, there will be a memorial celebration. Details to be announced.
