I’m Jim Krause. I live in northwest Washington state and have worked as a designer, a photographer, an illustrator, and a writer (all four in a single day, surprisingly often) since the 1980s. Over the years, I’ve done jobs for a wide range of clients, large and small, including Microsoft, Kodak, Cingular Wireless, Seattle Public Schools, Levi Strauss, Washington Apples, and more. In 1999, I started authoring books aimed toward designers, photographers, and other creative professionals. I’ve had more than fifteen titles on these subjects published, and their success has been a pleasant surprise both to me and to my publishers (the books are on sale around the world and some have been translated into as many as five languages). I really enjoy what I do for a living, and when I’m not working, I can usually be found clearing my head by riding a bicycle or a motorcycle, hiking, drinking coffee, reading, taking pictures, or doing an art project of some kind.
