RAK(Robert A. Kraus)
A few days ago, I posed the question of, “Who is RAK?” Well, those three letters are the initials of artist Robert A. Kraus. I suppose he’s pretty well known, because, his website says, “Welcome to the website of world famous artist RAK (Robert A. Kraus).” To tell you the truth, I kind of stumbled upon his work. Now, I don’t remember what I was searching for, but I was on Ebay and happened upon some trading cards of his work. The series is entitled “SUPERFREEKS”. He has a very unique style, and they’re quite eye catching. I believe there were 2 series, with 159 different cards in the first series alone! I only own six of the many cards in this set. Below, we will look at the first three in my collection.
This first group represnts one of my all time favorite movies, my favorite super hero and one of my favorite video game characters. As you can see, he has a very exaggerated style, that, in my opinion is very visually appealing. I would love to get a whole set of these and frame the entire set.
And, the last three.
I think Megatron would be my favorite of the lot. And I find the Lion-O and DangerMouse cards attractive as well. He also sells prints, matted prints, posters and a whole bunch of other stuff. There was a game on the SEGA Genesis titled “Chakan”, with the title character being a creation of Mr. Kraus. There are similar pieces of Chakan art available as well. These cards are avilable at rakgraphics.com.
