Born in New Orleans, Rodriguez has lived in California since 1965. He graduated from Chouinard Art Institute in 1969, and began freelancing as an illustrator. Over the years his style has evolved through many phases. He currently illustrates as himself (seen in Portfolios 1 and 2) and as the primary artist in his Studio 24/7 (seen in Portfolio 3). Some of the projects he’s especially enjoyed working on include the poster for SuperBowl XXVI, The NFL for 2002 Christmas card, movie posters for The Two Jakes, The Jewel of the Nile, and City Slicker’s II, the DVD cover for The Adventures of Robin Hood, the NBA All-Star Game poster, basketball trading cards, six Ringling Bros. Circus posters, posters for the National Hispanic Scholarship fund, calendars and posters for the National Federation of Labor, many covers for Der Spiegel Magazine, and theater posters for the Hartford Stage and the Mark Taper Forum.
