Robert A. Kraus: Art of Imagined Things (Canceled/Postponed)

Original comic and graphic novella drawings, prints and figures by Akron artist Robert A. Kraus and RAK Graphics.

Robert was one of the early pioneers in indie publishing for the comic book, game, and toy industries. His success came with his character Chakan the Forever Man, his signature graphic novella character who was featured and licensed in a SEGA video game in the early 90’s, and released as an action figure in 2019!

In a career spanning over 40 years, Robert is bringing his original drawings from his most loved characters and series such as Chakan the Forever Man, Everyman visual poetry series, RAM toy line, Devil Girl, Dragons, and his pop culture parody trading card set called Superfreeks.

“I try to interpret the world around me, to create images and realize ideas in a distinct style unique to me, and inspire others to explore their own inner worlds of fantastical thoughts.” ~ RAK

Robert Kraus is an Akron original. Beginning his training at the Central Hower Commercial Arts vocational program, he began working as a professional artist at a local ad agency while still in high school.
