Rodolfo Razo


Rodolfo Razo was a fashion illustrator, painter, and all around nice artist. I had the extreme pleasure meeting him when I lived in Waco. Here is a portrait of me done by Razo. He was able to sketch it out extremely fast and caught the essence of my image. I enjoyed sitting for him and I hope his legacy is remembered.

I agree, it inspired me to work on my portraits of people.

My first job in fashion layout design in 1975 was when I first met Razo. our work spaces were divided by a half wall and our friendship was priceless. As great of an artist as he was, he was always dragging me to the art students league in NYC for sketch classes. His camera was his sketch pad and each discarded sketch was like a unique snowflake falling down as he ripped it from his pad and discarded in the air. I located him recently and was thrilled that he was teaching classes in figure drawing at the museum. It was nice hearing his voice. He was always looking for your best, always happy and always drawing.i miss his presence here on earth. He is missed very much...
