While Eric Drooker's drawings and posters have become a familiar site in the global street art movement, his paintings appear frequently on covers of the New Yorker.
Born and raised in New York City, he began to slap his images on the streets as a teenager. Over time, Drooker's reputation as a social critic led to countless editorial illustrations for the Nation, the New York Times, the Progressive, the Village Voice, etc.
He won the American Book Award for Flood! A Novel in Pictures, soon followed by Blood Song, and most recently, Howl: A Graphic Novel. After designing the animation for the film, Howl, he was hired by DreamWorks Animation.
His art hangs in numerous collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Library of Congress.
He regularly draws from the figure, and is presently working on a series of nude paintings for an upcoming book, O Muse!
