"Janis is sincerely the most talented thinker-illustrator I've encountered. He's consistently using visuals not just to portray important concepts concisely, but also to add a new understanding to them. He elevates ideas with visuals. His work makes you think, "Ahh, now I get it." This is really hard to do. This is the person I'd want to learn from." -Julian Shapiro
