Trees

While I haven't had as much time as I wish I did, I have been slowly working on a new project these past few months.

They are simple black paper x-acto cut trees from all over the world with bits of symbolism and folklore within them.

Here are a few of my favorites, the Willow, Larch, and QuincePicture 3 Picture 8 Picture 9

I do have 11 x 14 and 11 x 17 prints available for $15 each, as well as cards for $3 each/ 4 for $10, just email me (katieskau@gmail.com)

A few weeks ago I also had the amazing experience of meeting Neil Gaiman, I attended a book reading/ signing for The Ocean at The End of The Lane, (which is so so beautiful) and was able to give him some of my art. As some of you might know he is a huge inspiration to my work and it meant alot to me to be able to share it with him. He was so kind and humble and I even got a kiss!!! Truly magic...

UPDATES!

It as been far too long since my last post but I am going to try to have this be the first of many updates.

 

 I should start by saying I have 2 events this week! Last week I found out that I was a finalist in the illustrator portfolio category for the Tassy Walden: New Voices in Children's Literature award! I am so excited and honored. There will be a reception tomorrow night at the James Blackstone Memorial Library in Branford, CT, so if you are in the area feel free to stop by.

I submitted my dollhouse and thunderbird book illustrations.

Hardboiled (A Group Show in Bushwick)

I can't believe it has been almost a month since I last posted. It has been a very busy month though between my day job and freelance/ personal work.

I wanted to tell you all that I will be a part of a group show in Bushwick next Saturday that was organized by some amazing illustrators that I graduated with last year! You should all stop by if you happen to live in Brooklyn.

And incase you were wondering, yes each tree hole does need to be cut out
