Hello, I’m Kodi Kat and living in the Midwest state of Iowa!
I’m a graphic designer by day and illustrator in my free time.
What kind of art do you usually draw?
Typically I’ve been creating digital vector art pieces, but I’m a traditional artist as well.
My work flexes between cute to straight up creepy and a mix between the two genres.
Usually I create an assortment of cat related art and merch that pertains mainly to black cats!
What got you interested in working with the Depression anthology?
I wanted to participate because I’ve been diagnosed from a young age with depression.
I’ve created an assortment of artwork to combat this and thought it’d make a great addition to the anthology.
Plus, I enjoy seeing everyone's perceptions in their work when it comes to art collectives.
Tell us a little bit about your works for the anthology!
My traditional piece is a shame mask that captures the emotional distress of when sickness takes over or rears it’s ugly head.
Shame masks were actually a type of punishment in the Middle Ages of Europe. They were heavy nonsensical masks that offenders wore to humiliate and portray that specific crime.
My digital piece is reflective to the mental weight of sadness and frustration that’s mixed when dealing with a mood disorder.
It’s also directed to show the overflow of symptoms that consumes parts of you.
That’s all really cool! Where can we find you?
