Illustrator Profile - Joe Ciardiello: "I'm probably one of three people left who still uses a Rapidograph"
Joe Ciardiello is a Western New Jersey-based illustrator best known for his brilliantly-drawn portraits of jazz musicians, authors, politicians, and actors. He received the Society of Illustrators Hamilton King award in 2016 for his portraits for the book On the Snap.

His work resonates with the richness of the finest jazz sax solo or master bluesman's guitar playing. Fellow illustrator Steve Brodner says that Ciardiello's illustrations show "the magic that is possible with line."
