Sean Rubin was born in Brooklyn, New York. An only child, he entertained himself by collecting interesting things, learning about unusual subjects, and by drawing characters from books. He is an illustrator for the New York Times Bestselling Redwall series and of upcoming Astronaut Who Painted the Moon and The Passover Guest. Sean graduated from Princeton University, where he met his wife, Lucy. They have two sons and live in Charlottesville, Virginia. Sean was the 2014-2015 New City Artist-in-Residence at The Haven.
Sean's masterful debut, Bolivar, received three starred reviews and was nominated for a 2018 Eisner Award. Sean was also nominated for the Russ Manning Award, a comics industry honor, for his work on Bolivar, which is currently being developed as a feature film with Fox Studios.
In 2015, resident artists Sean Rubin and Amanda Wagstaff facilitated the making of a Haven Community Quilt over the course of weekly quilting sessions in the Haven Day Shelter. Images, patterns, and messages were sewn, drawn, and colored onto the quilt pieces, which were placed onto the blank quilt, resulting in an art piece that reflects both the collective and individual nature of the Haven community. The Haven Quilt is displayed in the Haven Day Shelter. For images and the story of The Haven Community quilt, click HERE.
