Evolution of a Drawing


Work in Progress

Screen shot of a piece I’m currently coloring in photoshop.  Hopefully I’ll finish it sometime next week.

Sketch Theatre

In between my day job, working on designs for a friend’s wedding invitations, drawing up designs for a decorative chest of drawers, and creating a dummy for a children’s book I’m hoping not to get worn out on drawing.  In a search for inspiration to keep me motivated I stumbled upon Sketch Theatre, my new favorite website.  Sketch Theatre features a large variety of artists- childrens book illustrators, comic book artists, fine artists- doing sketches set to music of their choice.  The videos a sped up, only last roughly 3 minutes each, but its nice to see the process.  I love sketches more than most finished pieces, so finding this website was like dying and going to heaven.  Interviews are also posted on the site along with forums, where you can show your work, talk with other artists, and they have monthly sketching contests.  After watching several of the videos I of course had to sketch something out, so here’s a quick sketch done by yours truly (sorry I didn’t video tape the process).

Magic User

Been working on this in photoshop for the past couple days.  I’m not entirely happy with it, but oh well.

Rat Girl

Welcome to Rat Girl Studios, the official blog of Kate Wheeler.  Let’s start off with a little about myself, shall we?  I’m 23 years old and currently finishing my final year at Kendall College of Art & Design where I am a drawing major and have a minor in Illustration.  I mainly work with your traditional mediums (graphite and ink are my best friends) but have lately begun to dabble in digital coloring.  I’m currently accepting commissions and hope to hear from you.
