curious thing is kat himmel. i'm a portrait artist & illustrator currently based in stroud, england.

i like to think of curious thing as an edifying blend of art & history. i draw the faces of the widely celebrated & the 'should be widely celebrated'. that's because i need a reminder that there are (& have been, throughout history) decent human beings fighting - for the benefit of us all - against tyranny & greed.

i hope you'll learn something - & be reminded of the good in this world - every time you visit!
