Hi! I'm Kathleen, an illustrator and writer from Brisbane, Australia. I was raised on fairy tales in Western Queensland, and now I'm allowed to draw in other people's books. (You might also know me as Tanaudel on my blog,Twitter and Instagram, and from my webcomic a few years back, The Dalek Game). My art has also been shortlisted a few times for the World Fantasy Award and in 2018 I was nominated for a Hugo!
I'm in the early days of a "portfolio career", keeping my head above water by illustrating, writing, teaching and 'related activities'. But this severely limits the time I can spend on my own projects, on learning and gathering inspiration, creating new art, and just playing with pictures.
Some of the things I want to be able to do are to keep sharing my monthly fairy/folk tale-ish calendar page, sketching at festivals and airshows, illustrating my own tiny stories and, yes, drawing Daleks.
This is where you come in! Your support means all these projects have a chance to exist and, I hope, contribute to the sum total of beauty and stories in the world.
WHAT I MAKE and YOU GET:
- A monthly calendar page that you can print at home (to colour in or pre-coloured by me).
- Bits of pictures and snippets of story. At higher levels of support, I'll be able to make webcomics and little illustrated.
- Behind-the-scenes details and sneak-peeks of other art projects.
- Process posts and, depending on which goals are met, maybe even process videos.
- Advance information on sales, and depending on levels and websites, discounts on prints.
Your support and involvement will buy me the time (and caffeine) I need to make all this art. The images on this page are all works that have been created with the help of my patrons. Who knows what else could happen?
