AJ Rothert likes to do illustrations for food and/or monetary income. He has done work for a variety of clients ranging from his grandmother to the OSU Medical Library. He currently has a variety of comedian portraiture hanging in the homes of families and a comedian or two have given praise to his work. When he isn’t painting he is drawing inspiration from whatever comedy specials, TV shows, music, or movies around him. He escaped the suburbs of Cincinnati and quit the lucrative career of Grocery Store Clerk to study at Columbus College of Art and Design and pursue a career in Illustration.
