Kat Macleod - The Tiniest Spark

I'm sure all Melbournites would know the unmistakable work of illustrator and artist Kat Macleod... her stunning illustrations have been popping up everywhere in recent years - a delicate, eclectic combination of collage, hand stitching, careful line drawing and eye-popping splashes of watercolour and ink.

Kat's solo show entitled 'The Tiniest Spark' opened yesterday at fitzroy gallery Lamington Drive... must admit haven't popped my head in yet but it's top of my Saturday to-do list!

  1. and, don't you love how an illustrator was on the front page of A2 today – she is a superstar! i really love her work.

  2. You can find the excellent Age newspaper interview here:

    Design Files setting the pace again!

  3. Hey hey.. thanks so much everyone for all you comments - so sorry it's taken me a little while to respond!

    Actually since posting this I have been to see the show and it completely surpassed my expectations! In addition to Kat's stunning work there was a video projection of Kat working on several pieces... the camera is positioned above her desk looking down at her hands, materials and pieces in progress... it gives such an amazing insight into her creative process... I was transfixed!

    If you in Melbourne I highly recommend checking this one out. It is already very nearly sold out!
