Jonathon Rosen's art work revolves around permutations and extrapolations of bio-mechanical and carnivalesque. His work in many ways engages with the machine aesthetic of modernism and the effects of the ever-merging of humans and machines.

Rosen's work straddles the interrelated worlds of animation, comics, fine art, design, illustration and performance.

In Tim Burton's film Sleepy Hollow, Rosen did the drawings seen in the Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) journal. His work has appeared in The New York Times, Snake-Eyes, Rolling Stone Magazine, Time, CNN, PBS, Psychology Today, Eye and  ID magazines. He has done artwork for numerous record and CD covers including composer/producer T-Bone Burnett's LP release The Invisible Light, which recently debuted in Los Angeles and New York with performances by Rosen doing live video-mix reprocessing of his animation work.

Rosen's work has been exhibited at the EYE Film Museum, Amsterdam, PS. 1 Museum, LIC, Queens, Adam Baumgold Fine Art, New York, and La Luz de Jesus, in Los Angeles. Rosen was art director, co-author and co-designer of the oversize monograph Fantasia of Color in Early Cinema (AUP 2015). His limited edition artist books The Birth of Machine Consciousness and Intestinal Fortitude are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum, MoMA, New York, the Getty Research Center, Los Angeles, Yale University Library, and School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
