BW – EP44: Dr. Seuss On Crack—Illustrator Cheryl Gross

Posted on

In Episode 44 of Breaking Walls, we sit down with Illustrator and illustration professor Cheryl Gross for a conversation about how she uses fear as a catalyst in her art.
Highlights Include:
• The significance of Cheryl’s melting-pot upbringing in a Brooklyn that can be a polarizing place to grow up in

•Cheryl’s earliest memories of art and recollections about her childhood

•Why she believes her work being labeled as the equivalent to “Dr. Seuss on crack” is a compliment

•What is the Z-Factor? From where does it come?

•How fear has played a roll in Cheryl’s art

•Why she wanted to go back to school and to teach

•Thoughts on teaching at Pratt Institute in the 21st century

•Where Cheryl is headed and how she stays present
