Meet the Author

Katie O is an artist who lives and works in Coventry, England. In school she discovered her love of drawing and quickly gained a reputation amongst her peers as a talented artist. She continued her love of art on through to university, where she honed her skills and developed a style that reflects her unique imagination, while gaining an honours degree in Fine Art.


Katie O’s artwork covers many subject matters, but is tied together by a desire to challenge the perceptions that people hold about their everyday lives. This could be exploring animal transformations that nature forgot to evolve, or adding a new twist to the imagery of our favourite fairytales. In Katie O’s art, everyday objects can become terrifying, or the viewer can feel sympathy for even the most ferocious of monsters.


The altered realities presented in Katie O’s artwork provide intrigue and curiosity for the viewer, challenging that which they used to fear, while also questioning that which they believed was safe. They are seeing the world through new eyes. Through Katie’s eyes.


Katie works closely with fellow writer, editor and author Aaron Mullins, whose work can also be found on Smashwords: smashwords.com/profile/view/aaronmullins

    (:

    Though very basic, will definetly help you if you are a beginning artist. Kaitie-O does a very nice job of explaing style and techniqe to the reader and that will help you in all areas of artistry. I would of given this book four and a half stars if i could, so overall, nice job Katie-O. I would reccomend this book if you are a beginner.

    It's as fun as you make it!

    My 10 year old loves this book! After she got used to the style of drawing, she started making her own changes to them, coloring them, and steampunking them. This book may be too easy for some (my advice is to just find another book), not interesting to others (same advice as before), but as my daughter has demonstrated, start SOMEWHERE and learn from others and THEN start using your OWN imagination. I'm so glad that she loves this book! I think the drawings are well done and the instructions are clear. I wish I could find more kid-friendly drawing books like this one!

    Over all this book was an okay. I think that the pictures went a little too fast. And i dont think that i should have been made into a book it would be better as a video. But yes, i give it a 3/5
