Cat loves to work on editorial illustration, magazine covers, spot illustrations, and design for animation - amongst other things.
- Counterpoint Magazine - Sleep IssueCover illustration on the theme of Sleep for Counterpoint Magazine. I based this on the idea that sleep is related to mortality, in the sense that it's a form of oblivion and we don't know what lies on the other side of it. But it's also necessary to our lives and brings rejuvenation when we wake.
- Editorial illustration for LongreadsIllustration to accompany an article on Longreads - Muscle Memory: A Case History. The article tells the story of a woman who injures her back in a pole dancing class and follows her physical recovery while also examining her relationship to her body and how it has impacted her intimate relationships. The narrator navigates a healing process in which she learns to listen to herself, work towards greater self knowledge and, in so doing, make better choices. With thanks to Katie Kosma for her help
