Hello, welcome to my journal. My name is Kat, I’m a South African illustrator and artist living and working in Barcelona. I like to travel, sip sunshine on tropical islands, draw, snuggle purring kitties, and I would be quite happy doing all of those things at the same time. If you have been following my journal, this is probably stuff you already know. I draw and create stories for MissYucki, while dreaming of the next snorkelling trip. I live in a little apartment with my best friend in Barcelona, Spain. I have a collection of shiny stickers from my years spent living in Japan and lots of books. I enjoy reading art & design blogs, and watching a good movie with popcorn. I love Sunday afternoon drives. You can follow my adventures in illustration, life and inspiration here in my journal. If you are interested you can find out more about me on my website, and if you like what I do you can support me by buying a limited edition print in my shop. Thanks for stopping by, do take a moment to say hello, I love to hear from you, and all the comments really make the whole blogging experience worthwhile!

I created this journal primarily to keep friends and family updated on my whereabouts and doings while I was living in Japan, it slowly became more art focused as I began to spend more time illustrating for MissYucki, and myself. I use it as an archive to store inspirations, and to document places I have been to and seen as well as the process of my illustration.

  1. Lucky I have found your blog. Love your illustrations. I have started to take art lessons and make my dream come true, be an illustrator.

  2. I’m a student from the USA about to begin my first graphic design class next semester and I want to do what you do so bad! I’m afraid of getting stuck in a graphic design job that doesn’t allow for creativity. I love your work! Did you go to school for graphic design? How did you get where you are today? I would love to do what you do.

  3. Hey! I nominated you for Versatile Blogger! Apparently there is a tradition of doing the three following things:

    1. Seven random things about yourself
    2. Nominate 15 bloggers that you follow
    3. put the “Versatile Blogger” picture on your post.

    My latest post is about it!

  4. Hello, i am a graphic design/illustration student and i love your work! currently i’m working on my final major project and was wondering if you have any advice at all about illustrating for children, thanks a lot, Nikki :)

  5. Congratulations from Barcelona, I work also as illustrator and graphic designer and I find your job really nice. Felicidades y un abrazo.

  6. Hi Kat,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I wish I had lots of time to work on it, but I’m busy teaching. You have a lot in common with me! My friend in Japan is a famous artist. Check out Rieko Sakurai. I think you would appreciate her art. On another note, I taught in Japan and really got to know a lot of people from around the world, including a lot of South Africans who are super sweet and just genuine people! I adore Spain and all the avantgarde type ideas that come out of Catalunya. Your illustrations are beautiful and I look forward to hearing about your stories. I almost went in the direction of becoming an art curator, but decided to teach instead. Happy Traveling!
