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.
