Arrest All Mimics interviews What Katie Drew


Ben Tallon is invited to What Katie Drew‘s studio where as you’d hope, sits a desk smothered in incidental ink splats, chance smudges, marks and some smirk raising doodles. Ben talks to Katie about the evolution of her style, via a ten year hiatus whilst working in the world of advertising. They discuss how time out and a look into other disciplines can help in the long run, how a talented network can be crucial and Katie’s strong presentation of her work.

Moving image is becoming more and more ingrained in our daily lives and the way we digest our information. Katie speaks about her stunning animated RSA short film collaboration with George The Poet. She also tells Ben why 5am is a slice of horror in her world right now and how motherhood can impact a freelance creative journey.

This is a fascinating insight into one of the most naive, yet powerful styles in the game and the lady behind it.
