Katie Idle


My name is Katie Idle, and I have been creating stories for as long as I can remember.

More than anything I love to draw people, our everyday lives, our emotions, and our wonderful idiosyncrasies.  I endeavour to capture this in my sketches, and I have a passion for reportage (and people-watching!). I typically work with traditional media, and always have a sketchbook on hand to scribble down an amusing conversation or a poor, unsuspecting person nearby.

I come from a non-artistic background, my Undergraduate degree being in Classical Civilisation. I adore the Romans and Greeks and their myths, and cannot resist drawing inspiration from this rich source of history.

When I am not illustrating, I can usually be found reading in a corner under a pile of books, with my cat and a large mug of hot chocolate.
