Graphic Novels - Winner 2010
Fascinated early on by Japanese and European comics, Kate was captivated by the variety of ways of portraying art and story. She has worked for a variety of companies including Marvel, SelfMadeHero, Historic Royal Palaces, Hasbro, ILEX Press, Robinson and RandomHouse/David Fickling Books.
Following the softcover self-publication of Fish + Chocolate, the project was subsequently picked up for publication by SelfMadeHero, one of the UK's most progressive publishers of comics. It was released as a hardback through their Original Fiction Line.
Her other recent work includes a strip in NELSON (Blank Slate Books). The title collects many of the UK's top comic artists, collaborating together to create an exquisite-corpse style book detailing the life of one woman. She guested on issue #6 of the acclaimed new run of Marvel's Young Avengers by Gillen and McKelvie, and also branched out into animation, creating a piece about King Edward V and his little brother -- the notorious tale of the Princes in the Tower -- for the Tower of London.
You'll also find Kate's work among the pages of the weekly children's comic, The Phoenix. Her strip, The Lost Boy, ran from issue #1 to issue #35, and her new collaboration with Neill Cameron -- Tamsin and the Deep -- began in issue #118.
