“It is a challenge and a responsibility.” Madison artist Jerry Jordan finds himself a sought-after children’s book illustrator
Madison artist Jerry Jordan is going to be very busy for the next couple of years. At least. At the moment, Jordan is creating illustrations for “Marching for the Vote: the Story of Ida B Wells and the Women’s March of 2013” by Dinah Johnson, slated for publication by Little, Brown next year. He’s recently finished the first painting — a 24-by-36-inch work that will eventually spread across the first two pages of the book.
