Our friends over at R2-KT are celebrating the artists of the galaxy, shining a light on their work during these tough times which has seen conventions cancelled and postponed and their main revenue streams cut off as other matters take precedence. Every day through out June, R2-KT will focus on a talented artist of the galaxy, and today we enjoy the art of Katie Cook.
Katie Cook is a comic artist and writer that hails from the mitten state (as in Michigan, not that she is in the state of being a mitten). She is the creator of the comic Nothing Special on Webtoon and Gronk: A Monster’s Story. She spent several years writing IDW’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Katie is the illustrator of several Star Wars children’s books and has also done extensive work for Marvel, Disney, Fraggle Rock, and so much more! Her mother thinks she is funny. Her Star Wars credits include art for the Clone Wars online comic, illustrations for ABC-3PO, OBI-123, Search Your Feelings and Creatures Big and Small.
What drew you to illustrating Star Wars as a subject?
“I’ve loved Star Wars since I was a kid! Even if I wasn’t getting paid to do it I’d still be drawing porgs.”
