 Hello & Welcome! 

Hello and welcome to illustre! I have been contemplating creating this blog for a little while now and with much encouragement from friends and family and a little spare time up my sleeve it is finally here (yey!) 
My love for illustration began when I was very little. I would always carry a little sketchbook and colour pencils everywhere I went. Later on I went to a high school where science and maths related subjects were the main areas taught which was torture for me as I am definitely NOT a maths lover. So I began drawing illustrations in my text books and sometimes on the school tables... which usually got me into allot of trouble lol... 
Drawing is something I love to do but wish I had more time to do it. I currently work as a freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator and am completing a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication so life is quite busy lol...
One of my greatest loves is flipping through illustration books, magazines, websites, galleries etc and lucky for you guys I will be sharing with you all of my greatest discoveries.
I am a visual person so I won't be boring you with massive lines of text, I just want to focus on the most important and valuable information and links. This blog is all about the captivating and inspiring illustrations and helpful tips. Most of all it's about enjoyment and passion.
So grab yourself a tea or coffee and sit back and enjoy as you scroll through inspiring illustrations from established and up and coming artist. Would love to hear from you if you have any special requests.

Much love,
Kathy ♥

 A taste of things to come.
