With two Time magazine covers to his credit in the past month, there really is not much keeping Tim O’Brien down these days.  His work has also graced the covers of Rolling Stone, Esquire, Newsweek, among others. Several of his paintings hang in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and he continues to receive awards and significant accolades from a number of organizations including the Society of Illustrators.  Even as a child, O'Brien's talent was hard to mistake and the artist recalls times when he would waver between being inspired by art and being crushed by how quickly it defined his identity.  Inevitably, O'Brien recognized his calling and has since set in motion a sprawling list of achievements from speaking engagements at esteemed venues such as the Normal Rockwell Museum, School of Visual Arts, and Pratt to acting as a member on committees such as the Illustrators' Partnership of America.

O'Brien's new painting Fire Frog (below) is featured in this Friday's ICON6: A Labor of Line.  In addition to learning more about the Fire Frog piece, you can also read about the process behind his most recent Time magazine cover depicting Edision on the artist's blog here
