My first published art guidebook…

Hello world! 

I recently took time out from my drawing schedule to team up with Aaron Mullins to publish my first ever art guidebook! It is a guidebook on how to draw robots, for both adults and children, artists and non-artists, based upon the concept art for my Minor Malfunctions: Psychology of the Machine Exhibition.

The eBook contains step-by-step instruction on how to draw 10 different kinds of robots. The tagline reads:

“Robots. Where would we be without them? Those tireless engines of activity that power almost everything in our modern world. They so rarely get to relax, put their clunky feet up and give themselves an oil change.”

The eBook is free to download and is available in many different download formats, including Kindle, Epub and online readers.

Read or download it from here: How to Draw Robots by Katie O

Childhood Tales

Hello World!

With my robots terminated and my minor malfunctions under control for now it’s time for me to create a new, exciting world, but first I have time to indulge myself in my past for inspiration 🙂

When my sister and I were young we would love hear our dad tell us his tales of different worlds, introducing us to little characters; children that met whales, sharks and polar bears, living in underground dens. As he told us my mind would reel off into my own imagination, taking these worlds and characters with me.

I like my work to always have some kind of a narrative running through it, and it’s lovely for me to relive these stories and see these creatures brought to life through my work.

I can recreate images that I have had in my mind for years, with such joy coming from finding them again…

Keep your eyes curious for my new work of the seven sinful fairies and a tiny girls adventures across the big, wide, wondrous world. For now, I’m enjoying meeting all the creatures and people I was so excited to experience as a child 🙂
