I first saw Katie O'Neill's work when she designed the poster for the Anarchist Book Fair in 2013. Sometimes I judge a book by its cover (and I'm a librarian, the shame!), or at least a gig by its poster, and I thought the poster she did for it was cool as fuck.
Over the past couple of years it turns out other things I thought were 'cool as fuck" were also drawn by Katie. I've always thought the artwork for the band AlienShe was savage. Turns out it was done by Katie O'Neill. She is even in the band!! Go figure!
She describes herself as "interested in themes of identity
and space", whose work "conveys a sense of transition, outsiderness
and feelings of
alienation". I think this really comes across, check out her fly ring t-shirt if you don't
Can't wait to see Katie's stuff on March 22nd.
You can buy her stuff on esty here
