Can you tell us more about you and what you do?

An illustrator who takes great delight in drawing animals, especially cats. By infusing a sense of dark humor, the animals she illustrates often exhibit a human-like quality, being both adorable and clever. In 2015, Kathy began operating an online store that primarily sells her artworks along with small items like stationery and bags. In 2022, she published her first comic book, "Mobu'diary," which has also been translated into Japanese and Korean versions.

Every artwork tells a story. What inspired your cover design, what narrative or message are you conveying through your cover design, and can you share the creative process that led to its final form?

Everyone has their own missions, but no one knows what missions the cat has got. This is the first message that came into my head when I decided on this cover design. The cat on this cover exudes a mysterious vibe, as if his schedule is always a secret, much like ours.

How do you define your individuality as an artist, and in what ways does this uniqueness manifest in your creations?

I would describe my style as casual yet delicate. Some people have mentioned that my artwork seems effortless, but when they tried to imitate it, they found it challenging.

In your perspective, what role does creativity play in empowering individuals and communities, and how have you witnessed this power in action?

I believe that creativity has a way of bringing people together. For instance, when people find a particular piece of art amusing and share a laugh over it, it creates a connection between them.

Have you faced any challenges in maintaining your individuality in your work, especially in the face of trends or external expectations? How did you overcome them?

I used to strive for perfection, which caused me to struggle a lot and left me unsatisfied with my work. Then, one day, my professor at university told me that my drafts actually looked more interesting than my finished work. That's when I realised that 'perfection' isn't always necessary.

What advice would you give to emerging artists who are trying to find and express their individuality through their work?

Draw a lot of things that fascinated you greatly.

What’s the one thing you want to accomplish this year?

I’m working on “Mobu’s diary 2” and I just hope everything goes well!

Where can we see more of your work?
