Rodney Alan Greenblat is an American graphic artist known best in the United States as the artist behind the PlayStation series PaRappa the Rapper and in Japan for his picture book, Thunder Bunny. Born in California, Greenblat moved to New York City in the 1980s where he attended the School of Visual Arts and immersed himself in the East Village art scene. To quote Greenblatt “I started making really colorful, kind of cartoony art and I was part of the East Village arts scene in the 1980s, along with Keith Haring and Kenny Sharp and David Wojnarowicz and all kinds of amazing people.” He is an author and illustrator of children’s books; a freelance illustrator whose work has graced the pages of most major magazines and the cover of They Might Be Giants’ eponymous debut album; and a fine artist whose paintings and sculpture have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world and featured in the 1985 Whitney Biennial.
