Award winning illustrator, Victor Juhasz, whose work is published regularly in Rolling Stone, The Nation, and The American Prospect, is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design in New York City, 1975. He began illustrating in 1974 for The New York Times while still a student. Major magazines, newspapers, advertising agencies and book publishers, both national and international, have commissioned his humorous caricatures and illustrations. His clients have included Time Inc., Newsweek, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, Esquire, GQ, Men’s Journal, The Washington Post, Oxford University Press, The Village Voice and many more. From the mid 90s until the final entry in the March 2012 issue, Victor’s illustrations accompanied the hilarious David Feherty’s ‘Sidespin’ columns for Golf Magazine and have been included in two volumes of Feherty’s collected writings. His work appeared monthly for fifteen years on the front page of The New York Observer. He continues to relish his role as a frequent contributor of satiric images to the ‘National Affairs’ section in Rolling Stone Magazine. His creation of the recent Trump tornado cover for Rolling Stone was the subject of a mini doc. While caricature and humorous illustration comprise the main body of his work, his love of drawing has allowed him to cross over to other aspects of the profession. He was a courtroom artist for a number of years covering events such as the arraignment of the notorious Son of Sam and for the Washington Post the trial of John Hinckley for the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan.
Victor is also a reportorial illustrator whose visual documentation of soldiers and Marines in training and combat are part of the permanent collections of the USAF and the National Museum of the Marine Corps. As an illustrator and blogger, from 2008-2011 he was part of David Feherty’s Troops First Foundation tours of NATO, U.S. Army and Marine bases in Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan. In August 2011 he embedded with the 1-52nd Arctic Thunder Dustoff (helicopter rescue and recovery) in Kandahar, Afghanistan. In April 2017 he received the Col. John W. Thomason Award from the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation in recognition for his artwork documenting Marines in training and in the war zone and, as a member of the Joe Bonham Project, created by former Marine combat artist Michael Fay, drawing the recovering wounded at Walter Reed Medical Center. In May, 2012 Victor and members of the Joe Bonham Project were subjects of a New York Times Sunday Arts and Leisure feature.
In 2013 he accompanied and documented the work of Foundation Rwanda in Rwanda which provides assistance to the women who were raped during the genocide and bore children as a result of the rapes. Victor has spoken at The Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and a parody of a Rockwell favorite, “The Runaway”, done for The Village Voice, is part of the Rockwell’s permanent collection. Victor had a solo exhibition in 2016 at the Brinton Museum in Big Horn, Wyoming, which focused on his children’s book work and military art.
He has illustrated critically acclaimed children’s books for Sleeping Bear Press since 2004 that include “D is for Democracy: A Citizen’s Alphabet”, “R is for Rhyme”, “H is for Honor – a Military Family Alphabet”, “Z is for Zeus”, “G is for Gladiator: an Ancient Rome Alphabet”, and “HOT DOG! Eleanor Roosevelt Throws a Picnic”.
A sampling of his extensive output can be viewed on his website, www.juhaszillustration.com. Victor also blogs about assignments and the process of creating images on the website, www.drawger.com/victorjuhasz/. He and his wife, psychotherapist, transformation expert and public speaker, Terri Cole, have three grown sons and six grandchildren. They live in Stephentown, New York. He serves on the executive board of the Society of Illustrators in New York as executive Vice President. He is the recipient of gold and silver medals from the Society as well as the prestigious Arthur William Brown and Hamilton King awards.
