Steven Heller alerts us to the death of New York icon Silas Rhodes, who founded the Cartoonists and Illustrators School, which became the School of Visual Arts. Heller’s personal recollections of Rhodes were posted today:

Mr. Rhodes took great personal pride in the fact that so many alumni returned to SVA, many from successful careers as artists, photographers, filmmakers. advertising people, and designers, to teach others – to continue the legacy. He glowed when relating the accomplishments of those who were molded by an entity that was more like laboratory than an institution – more than a school but a community.

More about Rhodes in his AIGA Medalist entry.
