Our Kelly is the newest member of The Catholic Illustrator’s Guild.
Check out her introduction.
My name is Kelly and I will be 13 in November.
When I was in Kindergarten, I was very unapproachable and stubborn. I cried. a lot. On my first day of school, my teacher suggested that we all draw self-portraits. Though all the other kids had A LOT of fun doing so, I tried and tried to make my drawing as good as something my older sister would draw, and failed. I cried and cried and even said the “s” word (”stupid”). What can I say? I was a Kindergarten rebel. I vowed never to draw again. But how could I do THAT?!? As weeks followed, although I remained unmanageable, I began to draw. In fact, the classroom was suddenly covered in my drawings. Yes, THAT is where I got my start.
I now draw everywhere,
on everything and all the time.
When I’m not doing so, I’m probably being pestered by one of my four other siblings or my crazy Dad.
I recently started drawing comics with characters of my own. My favorites are the ones I do about what my baby brother Adam does when no one is looking… like cooking, sky-diving, teaching spanish to the elderly (even though he can’t really talk yet)
and looking for a job.
I hope one day to be a famous artist…
but for now, I’d just like to show you some of my work.
