Katie-Chappell-Illustrator-Edinburgh-Web-62.jpg

Hello!

I'm Katie and I am an illustrator.

People like working with me because

“Katie is super easy to work with, quickly gets to grips with what you are looking for and is happy to adapt as the project progresses.”

“Exceptionally quick to respond to emails and calls, and all illustrations were done ahead of what was already a tight schedule. Both myself and the graphic designer I was working with at the time were delighted with the service we received, and how engaging Katie was throughout the process.”

Regular naps and black coffee keep me going, along with a strong dislike of offices.

Inspiration

Old packaging, travel adventures with a bag full of paint and sketchbooks, plants, the people around me, and old photographs.

Life

I live in a little cottage in my hometown with my photographer partner Cameron who likes to collect old things. Am I one of the old things? Oh wow... Maybe I am.

Work

I am a part-time lecturer in illustration and graphic design, and I also travel a lot doing live illustration and graphic recording at events and meetings. I love to use my illustration powers for good and I am especially interested in projects on sustainability, eco-friendliness and ethical causes.
