What It’s Like To Be A Legally Blind Illustrator and Graphic Designer”

“I can literally only see inches of paper at once; my art will always look a little off,” explains Keith Rosson. Freelance illustrator and graphic designer, Rosson, who notes that he has a “client list that I’m profoundly proud of,” was born with optic nerve hypoplasia and is legally blind. He began producing art work, drawing and other creative pursuits as a child and never stopped, growing up to be “Someone with a severe visual impairment succeeding in a visual field.” His work is highly stylized, depicting, for example, “a single-panel, single plane…a figure or two on a flattened panel…” He vividly describes his experience in a bylined article in the Huffington Post.
