If You Love Stories. . .
About Mary Kathleen Scott
I’m an artist and illustrator specializing in lettering. If you need a way to visually showcase your story, theme, or message, I can create a lettering and/or illustration piece to represent your ideas in a beautiful way. I work with authors, production companies, churches, shops, and many others to convey their story or message in a single visual image.
I have a love for lettering, art, and book and stationery stores, so naturally I love working with clients that intersect with these loves.I draw and create for the love of the process and it’s how I best communicate ideas. I find it fascinating to turn a theme, story or idea into a visually compelling illustration.
I work with authors, event coordinators, and small productions and businesses to create a compelling illustration that visually represents their story, theme or idea. The challenge of pulling out themes in story and translating those themes to a visual representation makes the work interesting. And I believe in the tangible magic of stationery, books, and posters.
To create illustration and lettering art that tells a story or communicates a message or theme that speaks to an audience with meaning and intention.
To help authors, event productions, and businesses translate their stories and messages into visual illustrations that communicate their vision and draw customers in to their world.
Tools: Pencil, Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop
When you need your story or ideas translated visually into a beautiful illustration, simply contacting me with your needs and what you do gets the process started.
After working through your brief and going over specifics, I begin work on your project. I always work through numerous sketches until I reach a near finalized point. Here I work closely with you on making changes to the sketch and upon approval of a final sketch, the magic happens digitally where I work to create your illustration and provide you with all the assets and products you need.
I specialize in lettering and have a deep love for what can be done with letterforms and how they relate to each other. Much of my work has a vintage feel with natural textures, softer hues and deep contrast. I primarily work with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop but first my ideas are always flushed out on paper.
