A note to struggling artists
I recently had a talk with a good friend of mine who is just testing the waters with drawing, and it made me think about (in BNHA terms) my start-line. When I first started out, I had a conception of this straight shooting path towards what I believed to be “success.” But the more time I spent interacting with the art community, the more I doubted my original intentions. It seems simple now, having learned enough to draw what I want to, and having established myself in a comfortable fashion, but I remember how much I struggled with trying to figure out my purpose as an artist while at the same time battling style inconsistencies and mediocrity. 
The truth is, I still face the same problems today. It’s only that I have enough experience to look at this now, and just let myself create what I want to. Art is expression, and my way of dealing with uncertainty is to just let life take me wherever it wants to. Kind of a no brainer, but to be able to draw what you love

Krita had some trouble
Things went so fast the last few days for Krita that I couldn't even manage to update you.
I don't want to bug you with a very long text here so I try to keep it short.
Krita had some issues with Dutch tax authorities and they treat them as a company, so they had to pay VAT.
End of the story is that Krita Foundation got a bill of 24.000 Euro.
Money that Krita just doesn't have:
This news distributed very quickly and the Community started to donate money and within a Day the fund goal was already reached.
You can read more about that here:
And here:
We want to thank all the people that donated and spread the word for us.

No watchers yet.



I draw a lot of fan art. I can't help it. When I love a movie I find that I want to draw it. The only problem is what to do with the art after. I'm not sure...

Kate Murray
Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
Kate has been drawing since she was a child, but it is only recently they she has realised that she is an illustrator. It sort of happened accidentally. She started illustrating her own books, and got asked to do a couple of others, then a cover, a corporate drawing, another cover… and suddenly she was an illustrator!

Kate specialises in drawing and ink, both traditionally and digitally. But will also work in watercolour, acrylic, oils and mixed media.
