I am delighted you want to find out more about me personally, however please talk to my agents about commissions as they handle all of that for me. I look forward to working with you.

Cat Sims

About

Training


Studying Graphic Design at UAL London College of Communication, Cat focused mainly on experimental film. She returned to her love of drawing after completing her degree and kicked off her illustration career with a series of t-shirts for Illustrated People.

Approach


Cat likes to mix things up and looks for different ways to combine handmade and digital elements in her work. Usually, rough sketches are scanned in and progressed in Photoshop and Illustrator, bringing in texture, light and colour.

Style


Originally, Cat loved working in black and white but her newer works are introducing bold splashes of colour. Narrative is always a strong element in her imagery, which is based on line work, lots of clever detail, and texture. The latter is often derived from printing techniques such as halftones.
