I love telling stories.
I can think of no greater joy than weaving tales with friends, wearing a myriad different faces and souls as we figure out who we are and what brings our lives meaning.
Yet those souls often stay but gleams of thought in our minds, forever trapped in our heads, unable to be shared or seen.
What pleasure we gain then, seeing those hidden shards of ourselves brought to life in full color before us.
My name is Kate.
Let me draw those shards for you.
Not accepting currently; please email if you want to go on the waiting list!
Please note although this is a priority list, I may complete commissions in any order especially if the current piece is especially big or complex to avoid burnout.
I sometimes do pieces for my community as competitions, or otherwise.
Commissions always take precedence but here you can see what's on!
My name's Kate and I'm a freelancer based in Montréal.
I've always loved art, but younger me never really put in the time to study anatomy and references and all those other important things that would help improve the things I hated in my drawings.
So I figured I'd always be a 'meh' doodler that would never adapt to digital art, always be mediocre and never able to satisfactorily pull what was in my head onto paper.
Older me had twiddling fingers after getting made redundant and unable to work while waiting for my permit.
All the excuses went away.
Creating characters and bringing them to life is what gives my existence meaning. When not drawing, I wordsmith. I'm a ravenous writer and roleplayer, and it's my second biggest hobby.
I am owned by two beautiful, high-maintenance cats.
In a twist of fate younger me could not conceive, I am happily married.
FFXIV Jobs, but Hollow Knight Bugs
Sometimes, you just have to have fun.
This actually started off as a doodle in my French classes. Once I started thinking up what bugs would be the other jobs, I had to go on to finish them all.
And then it went completely viral on Reddit >< Which was awesome
and terrifying and meant I had to actually start doing some proper work doing business! For sure a motivator...

I ask for half the payment at the point we are both happy with your sketch.

Terms of Service
If after accepting a piece of work I feel that I'm not going to be able to do your request the justice it deserves, either due to skill or unforeseen circumstances, I will let you know and provide a full refund.
If you decide to cancel a commission partway through, I reserve the right to keep the down payment made if the work done is significant.
As a guide, if I have nearly completed lineart, that is significant work.
I will provide to you any work done at the time of cancellation.
The artistic process is an ongoing one and new ideas/inspirations strike at any time. If I suggest a change/rework and you like and accept it, there is no charge.
Minor changes like color switches, expression changes, hairstyle tweaks etc. will not incur any charge.
Major revisions post lineart completion such as pose changes, head turns, clothing changes etc. can be requested twice without charge. Past that is $10 per major revision.
I maintain the right to share completed work as part of my portfolio and for advertising.
However, if you don't want me to share your commission, please let me know.
As the client, you're very welcome to:
Edit, resize or crop your piece to your tastes (You can also ask me for specific crops!).
Share your piece at any stage wherever you wish; please do credit me where possible!
Create prints, t-shirts etc of your piece as long as it's for your personal enjoyment/use and not for profit.
I maintain the creative rights to my work unless negotiated otherwise.
