About the Artist

My name is Kat, and I go by Katimus on the internet.  Despite the gender-ambiguous internet name, I’m ok with and usually answer to she/her pronouns. I studied illustration and graphic design in college, and I now work as QA for a local game studio.  I live in the Baltimore area with my husband.

I have been living with bipolar disorder since 2005, and my art is one of the things that allows me to hold my head up high.  If anything, I hope to encourage others like me to continue their passion for art, even if things are bad in their lives. I struggled very hard to gain my independence back after being diagnosed in 2005, and I know many people with the same disorder are a lot worse off than I am, but I’d like to stand as proof that it can get better.  In case that’s not apparent enough in the subjects and themes that I draw, I openly support LGBTQIA+, civil liberty, and mental health causes, and am myself bisexual. I aim to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable with my art, and to inspire positivity where I can.

I’ve been drawing since I was little, and no one could get me to stop.  I draw on anything that looks blank – receipts, expensive paper, anything I can find or buy that strikes my fancy.  I am not as strong digitally, but I love working with simple paint apps and pixels. I have a fierce passion for science fiction and fantasy, musicals, comic books, anime and video games, and draw my inspiration from all of these to make my art.  The softest part of my heart is for game series with giant robots and villains with pathos.  

Due to my schedule, I am currently unavailable for commercial or freelance work, but I am active on Twitter, Tumblr, and my Facebook Art Page.

If you have an interest in buying my artwork or supporting me financially, I have shops at Redbubble and Fine Art America, and my Patreon page is currently open for modest donations, even though I’m unable to provide as consistent rewards as others on that site.  Commissions are currently on an on-interest basis only, as I cannot complete them in a timely manner.
