In Memoriam: Jeremiah Goodman
I just learned the sad news that artist Jeremiah Goodman passed away at home this morning. I was lucky enough to meet Jeremiah for a profile on the blog and to photograph him for my book. Below is part of what I wrote after meeting him for the first time.
It was really interesting to hear Jeremiah speak about growing up during the Depression. He said that it instilled him a great work ethic and he still gets up every morning to draw and paint. He also told me that he actually gets upset if a job falls through because he likes to work. I mentioned before but I think when you have a passion for what you do, it keeps it from feeling like work. It was really clear that Jeremiah loves his work and it keeps him young.
The worlds of art and design will not be the same without him and he will be greatly missed.
