This lady is pretty amazing. We knew her mostly from her Daily Purchase Drawings, but holy moly!—Kate does everything. No, really. In addition to illustration and design, she has done photography, installations, worked with textiles, created patterns, published zines, initiated several participatory projects, and to top it off, she’s been teaching for the last eight years. What keeps her going? She loves what she does and her enthusiasm was obvious when we talked. Kate shared about changing majors a few times in college, her first design job, how her curiosity about consumerism started to influence her work, being inspired by family—her grandma was an illustrator and her parents were weavers—and why she’s thinking differently about design education. Thank you, Kate, for sharing your story and your endless energy with us. You’re an inspiration and we appreciate all you do. Keep kicking ass!
