Hello world! ♥
As most of you know, I recently published my first ever eBook (yay!) and last Saturday I held the launch event and promotion of my series of mechanical machines in Coventry Hobbycraft. I was accompanied by the editor of the book, Aaron Mullins. Together we put on art demonstrations straight from the book.
The eBook is available for free from here: How to Draw Robots by Katie O.
It was really fun to launch my own book and be able to show people how I get from a blank canvas to my final drawings. The book itself was based on the concept art from my previous Minor Malfunctions exhibition and I am now in the process of writing further art books, based on my other exhibitions.
So I have been digging out the secret drawings that nobody has ever seen, and combining them with my personal photographs of the events, to create a really intimate journey through both my art and personal life. My writing too is focused on not only the technical aspects of my work, but also a diary of how I felt when creating the pieces and releasing them into the world! It is both a showcase of my artwork and an autobiography of an artist 🙂
For now, I will leave you with these images of the eBook launch and hope they inspire you to go and check out the book for yourself.
