  • “Jon Krause creates images that are typically characterized by a sense of calm that masks an elegant edginess and witty irony. His intelligent, thought-provoking illustrations firmly grasp the viewers attention at first glance, but the second glance is often rewarded with an unexpected visual twist.  Jon executes his compelling concepts with strong compositions and a tastefully subdued color palette.”
    – written by Bryan Gray, 2009
