John Katzmarek is currently a high school senior at Prior Lake High School in Minnesota (United States). He is studying under fellow 'Illustrate Our Rights' illustrator Gregory Euclide learning graphic design and various other styles and techniques while continuing to building a portfolio to submit as he applies for college. John is interested in studying Graphic Design and Advertising with hopes of eventually becoming an advertiser himself in the future. He has a passion for minimalist art style and likes using simple images to convey more complex ideas. He is continuing to build a collection of works and we are excited to see what he does next!
