Kate Prior’s bright, tongue-in-cheek and colourful illustrations have secured her commissions for The New Yorker , ASOS, Adidas and Pitchfork among others. Kate is currently working as an in-house illustrator for Urban Outfitters in Europe and the USA, but she still remembers drawing in more humble surroundings at her parents’ house, “as a way to keep me quiet.”
On her inspirations Kate says: “I’m influenced by conversations, dreams, potty humour, the internet, and stories my Dad told me when I was eight.” Bold lines and garish characters come together wonderfully in posters and postcards in an approach that’s boisterous and very, very fun.
