Here is a picture of what my commencement show will look like mostly. So if you can't make it there, you can just click back here and make yourself light refreshments and it will be almost as good.

Semi-proffesional site up

http://natekrasner.blogspot.com/ now up and mostly functional. Important things to add: contact information, bio, Splash image//animated gif.

I'm going to keep this one updated better though, so don't update those Readers. Do let me know what you think of this new baby though.


The summer after sophomore year everything I did had this color pallet. I really dig it. Also I dig pictures of fights.

Exhibition Design

Early Pitch Sketches Designs for large scale final branches
Final branches in process of installation

I helped design a spring themed exhibit for Daniel Krall's fashion illustration class (properly called Lifestyle, body and behavior, improperly called Bath mats and Casino interiors). Here you can see the steps we went to. In addition to these branches I had a plan for a major cloud of sparrow cut outs, however the consensus leaned towards someone elses proposed major butterfly swarm. I probably could have moved the masses to accept sparrows but opted for compromise because I just saw the Fountainhead and realized I don't want to be no Howie Roark. For the final presentation I got some help from my friend Sophia, who was a great help in making these go from flat to dimensional. We used a lot of foam core, acrylic paint, and razor blades. You may notice some tape thats in there currently as the epoxy is still setting, but I'll be taking that down tomorrow.

In Progress Mothman

Here's something I've been working on. It still needs some borders and some patterning but its pretty well on its way I think.

Tag Team Dream Team

So I collaborated with Kate Haberer on this project. If you've noticed my prettiest of ladies aren't usually drawn that pretty, so she drew figures, and I drew backgrounds. She took point on color direction too. Actually she was pretty much director on these, which is good, as sometimes my work gets away from me. I think given our wildly different styles these came out totally amazing.

This was our mailer design, based on one of Kate's early sketches.

This is a two page spread, the figures on the left are based on one of Kate's early sketches, and the mayhem on the right are based on one of mine.

Here is most of what I did on the spread, although there were some additions, notably the broken wall, floppy disks, Louis Vuitton monogram, and a hapless, tackled man.
