Jon Klassen . An absurdly talented guy !

November 11, 2011

Jon Klassen is an amazing illustrator. He creates beautifully moving and yet quietly mesmerising work

that is quite different to anything I’ve seen before.

I love how his work is both simplistic yet highly textural.

Originally from Niagara Falls, Ontario, Jon now lives in Los Angeles, California.

Having worked with director David OReilly for U2’s latest music video, the pair combined again to

present an animated piece that confronts abstract space in 3D environments.

Amongst so many other great things, Jon is also creating book covers and illustrated books as well.

Did I mention he also worked on Coraline too.  What a truly talented guy !

There’s also two interesting interviews with Jon on Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast blog

here, and on Illustration Mundo. Also a fab interview on Cartoon Brew about Jon’s animation here.

Watch this full screen and swim somewhere different today !
