Jerelle's Artwork

Jerelle Kraus has shepherded the work of some of the best illustrators of our time. But she is also an artist in her own right, who contributed a number of her own artworks to The Times’ Op-ed page. One of Jerelle's most controversial drawings of a massively pregnant Karl Marx won the prestigious Art Directors Club award. More than one Times’ editor was chagrined by the image. “Couldn’t you make him a little less pregnant?” one asked.
