hello, it’s me

full disclosure: writing about myself (o, hello! by the way, the name’s kat himmel) sends me into paroxysms of existential dread – but you might want to know why on earth i draw, so i’ll try to make this painless for both of us.

through portraiture, my goal is to revivify remarkable people (flawed, but ultimately well-intentioned & compassionate) whose stories should be remembered. i’m a sort of magnanimous victor frankenstein with a battered set of brushes in lieu of a mad scientist’s bag of dirty tricks.

private commissions? yes, i love to do ’em – but i’ve also been published by Little White Lies, Sandwich & First Look Media. have a look at my gallery & see if there’s anyone you like. i sell prints & t-shirts. just complete the contact form if you’re desirous of a portrait.
