I’m Kate, that’s who!
I work primarily now with IDW and kaBOOM! Studios, making comics for various Cartoon Network properties. I am the series writer for the Bravest Warriors comic, as well as the writer of Adventure Time: Seeing Red and an upcoming OGN (Fall 2014). I have self-published three mini-comics which then came together into the glossy wonder known as Ultimate Kate or Die, which is of course only now a small sampler. Sometimes things become available in my Etsy shop! I collaborate with the podcast Welcome to Night Vale. I run a group online for girls who work in comic shops. I start a lot of things I can’t finish. I travel excessively, which is part of why this comic rarely updates. I contribute biweekly Kate or Die strips to ComicsAlliance, though!
I am self-taught in comics and have been making them since late 2010. I use Micron and Faber-Castell pens as well as a Pentel brush pen. I’d use Copic if I could afford them. I’m a fan of Canson Bristol paper and cheap, cheap watercolours. I colour digitally with a Monoprice 9×12 tablet, and I recommend it to everyone. I like to make lip-synch videos and edit things together to music. I dropped out of art school and look at me now, mom!
