I'm kindly invited to What Katie Drew's studio where as you'd hope, sits a desk smothered in incidental ink splats, chance smudges, marks and some smirk raising doodles. With a style very close to being utterly unique, I talk to Katie about the evolution of it, via a ten year hiatus whilst working in the world of advertising. We discuss how time out and a look into other disciplines can help in the long run, how a talented network can be crucial and Katie's strong presentation of her work. Moving image is becoming more and more ingrained in our daily lives, the way we digest our information and I talk to Katie about her stunning animated RSA short film collaboration with George The Poet. She also tells me why 5am is a slice of horror in her world right now and how motherhood can impact a freelance creative journey. This is a fascinating insight into one of the most naive, yet powerful styles in the game and the lady behind it. Get your thoughts over on Twitter @arrestallmimics now!
