Jon Krause - USA
An ironic heart beats beneath the calm, flat surface of Philadelphia illustrator Jon Krause’s art.
The 39-year-old illustrator likes to work old-school.
He generally eschews social media and many of the current technological gadgets that most are addicted to, preferring the analog world.
It must be working for him because he keeps garnering awards and because he’s still busy after fifteen years in the business.
Though he does tend to worry during the occasional downtime, he says, “Those feelings get balanced by the two-week periods when you have so much work that you don’t really leave the studio, see the sun, or socialize on an acceptable or necessary human level.”
He excels at clever takes on financial, medical and educational topics for a wide range of clients, including Deloitte, AbelsonTaylor and Hill Holliday and publications such as TIME, the Atlantic, the New York Times Book Review .
His work has repeatedly received awards from all of the major illustration annuals.
