Another year, another zine fair.

This year was the best one yet, for me anyway. I created a new called Sheena, with a central character of the same name. This was different to things I have done before because I used the same character throughout instead of a selection of random drawings. This purpose made me make a better zine than I ever have. It verges on comic book but not quite, it has no real narrative. Sheena is special to me nonetheless, because she basically is me.

Some of these zines you can buy on my etsy store.

Thanks for reading!

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:

This is a rough animatic for a project I am working on at uni at the moment. This is not the finished product however that will be vastly more colourful and much smoother animation. I will also post that when I’m done. Very excited that its coming together though :)  The sound is very basic and not edited too well but the finished animation will have ironed out all that.

The story is basically a girl who loves too eat dirt. However little tiny grass shoots start popping up all over her body, she freaks at first out but continues to eat the dirt. It’s a vicious cycle with many possible interpretations.

Hello, just calling to say I have made a new A5 zine (very exciting!) and it is now for sale on my Etsy site. It contains recent drawings and illustrations of mine as well as a longer poem at the very end. There are 16 pages and it is bound with red cotton thread. There is a caption to go with each drawing which are generally about self-preservation or me personally and thoughts about some different aspects of life in a quirky manner. :) Also if you reside in Melbourne you can pick up a copy at Sticky Institute (lucky you!) and check out the other awesome zines they have there as well, no shipping required! I am very glad to have an outlet for all these drawings and ideas. Here are a coupe of preview images:

More pages from my sketchbook that i sent to the brooklyn art library, part of The Sketchbook Project 2013. Which you find out more about here, (that i forget to mention earlier) and view other peoples books! Mine will be on there soon enough. ;)

Here is what i am also doing at the moment besides getting sunburnt and eating marshmallows:

Hello there, I have recently been working on and filled up a small sketchbook and sent it off to be a part of the Sketchbook Project in Brooklyn. It’s a project where anyone can enter and they keep your book in the Brooklyn art library as part of a collection, i think there are 2000 entrants this year! After a difficult beginning process i think i am quite pleased with how it turned out. Here are some of my favourite excerpts: ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

     

Some images from my new zine! Yay! which is now available online via to my etsy store ! OR if you live in Melbourne head on down to Sticky and grab yourself one!

I also have available now custom made tote bags like the one I made and posted here, for a reasonable price, also on etsy, how very exciting! And of course there is a whole range of my drawings and illustrations there as well if you are interested :)

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 ;)
