Jakob Crane

Jakob Crane

Jakob Crane is a writer and visual artist who is native to New England. After graduating from Lesley University College of Art and Design, Crane worked as a writer and illustrator for numerous newspapers and publications throughout New England. As a boy, he trotted across the stone-walled landscape into early American cemeteries and battlegrounds. Though he has hitchhiked across America, Crane’s love of the tales and history of New England have been a strong influence on his work; that interest is reflected in his first graphic novel, Lies in the Dust: A Tale Of Remorse From The Salem Witch Trials.
