Burt has been commissioned to paint portrait covers for Time magazine and has drawn portraits of over 125 people profiled in The New Yorker. He is also one of the few painters to have been elected to the prestigious Society of Illustrator’s Hall of Fame and the Pastel Society of America’s Hall of Fame.
