About the Artist: Shane Rebenscheid

Shane Rebenscheid

Each year, a committee of librarians across the country choose the artist for the Collaborative Summer Reading Program, which is made available to libraries across the country.  This year’s artist for the adult program is Shane Rebenscheid.

Shane Rebenschied is best known for his photo illustrations, the realism of his 2D digital designs, and science-fiction and fantasy book covers. He graduated from the Art Center College of Design in 1998 with an emphasis on traditional and digital media. Since then his work has appeared in the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles and New York annuals as well as numerous national and international publications and advertising campaigns. He is a fan of old paper and stains, and can often be found staring at pieces of corroded, rusted metal.
