Hey there, it has been a while since I posted but since then I have made three new zines of both my drawing and writing!

I recently had a stall at the Melbourne Tonerpalooza zine fair (first of its name). It was terrifically fun and scary at the same time. I met a lot of other awesome and lovely zinemakers/buyers. There is also a post about it on the thousands where I’m briefly featured!

So here you go:

Hello there :)

Here are some drawings for you. The top two are just some doodles i did that came out quite good in  funny way that is. The rest are some sketches for a little story i made up about a girl called Soso who finds a strange creature in the forest and keeps it in her cupboard. ;)

Here are some more photos and details from my recent exhibition at Punk Milk Gallery.

 

Still more to come! ;)

On Friday I installed my very first solo exhibition in Frankston, at a gallery called Punk Milk with help from all the wonderful people there. It was super exciting!! but of course stressful too. It is on until Thursday of this week. It was a lot of work for just one week of showing but definitely worth it :) I exhibited a series of framed watercolour illustrations, all my journals from the last 6 months, various sketches, a new zine, two stop motion animation projections and the paper and plushie characters that acted in them. For those who can’t make it here are some photos to ogle, that I took today while gallery sitting.

       

Here is the artists statement that I provided also (and rustled up at the last minute ;)

Katherine Pigott is a Melbourne-based emerging artist working in the field of animation, drawing and watercolour illustration.

‘A World Defined by Dreams’ is based around ideas of the earth’s natural cycles, the relationship between man and nature and also narrative and fantasy as a form of cathartic process. Its main focus however is on these visions of an otherworldly kind that are somehow so familiar.

These ‘otherworldly’ depictions show isolation, destruction, transformation, fear and longing. Yet they appear hopeful and inspired by the greater powers and potential mysteries of the planet.

Dreams are a starting point for visual association and further ideas and brainstorming. The commanding visuals in dreams can be so impressive on the mind that there is a need to put it on paper or in motion somehow. Drawing acts as an investigation into the understanding of dreams and the further regions of the brain untouched by conscious thinking. Each drawing is like one moment captured in the timeline of thoughts that travel through one’s mind; they are just the beginning of a story that the viewer has to finish in whatever way they choose. And just like in a dream the viewer can end up in the middle of a story or place with no idea how they got there.  Unlike traditional storytelling, these images don’t give so much away, the mystery in a drawing can be the most interesting part. Many of the works also embody and describe the intuitive process of drawing itself and in the case of the two films showing, the way in which the medium of animation has the ability to dictate narrative and process.

While displaying personal sentiments and questions, crises etc, each work describes in some way a universal predicament, a human predicament.

Thanks for reading, I hope it was somewhat interesting for you. I’ll leave you again (after such a long break) with the newest film I showed, right here.

 

Enjoy!

Here is a sneak peek from a part of my new animation that i’ve been working on, this is the ‘studio’ (i.e. my bedroom) where i have been shooting it. But i don’t want to reveal too much of it just yet ;)

Drawings from the first week of march and autumn for the seventh week of my Drawing a Day project. They went through a bit of a creepy stage, which I rather liked.

These are the drawings from week 6 of my Drawing a Day project. The last week of February and summer here in Australia! (please click on the pictures to make them bigger) Got a new sketchbook during the week too woohoo!

These are the sketches from my drawing a day project week 3. I am beginning to think more about what I am drawing before I do each one instead of just doing whatever, which is good. It means I might be able to draw better under pressure. (If I ever need to that is.) I do find myself getting lazy with it though so then I really have to put in the effort. Sorry about the poor images, I do not have a scanner (yet!) My favourite of this lot is the merman/fishboy at the bottom, although you can’t see it too well I think it has potential for a series.
