Kathryn Rathke

International line illustrator. Seattle


Peter Rockwood @ Rockwood and Perry

I love my owl illustration. Your line work is beautiful, everything I'd hoped for and more. I'll be sure to send you the advertisement that will be put together by my designer.

Angela Riechers - Freelance Art Director @ O the Oprah Magazine

Kathryn’s work is wonderful for its specificity captured in a minimum of graceful fluid lines. She adds such energy and joy to every project.

Young-Sun Kim @ Big Picture Branding

The client is very excited. We are receiving very positive press. Thanks again for your contribution (to the Wendy's logo).

Sarah Habershon - Art Director @ The Guardian

It's stunning Kathryn! I don't know how you do it. And I love the way you have combined the slick lines with the smudgy charcoal too.
I have no changes or tweaks. Fantastic! And Paul, the Editor, loves it also. (Plus you got it in early which is an enormous treat for me, it helps me out later in the week, when things get esp hectic.)

Thank you so much!

Ben Brannan @ The Evening Standard

"Thank you so much for your wonderful work and patience,
You have been great to work with."

Tessa Sussner - Art Director @ Sussner Design Company - Minneapolis

Kathryn has illustrated dozens of head shots for us. Her illustrations are spot-on and the employees LOVE the drawings of themselves. And to top it off - she is easy and fun to work with!

Donald Partyka @ Americas Quarterly

Kathryn's portraits strike the right balance between caricature and portraiture. Her likenesses are always spot-on--she interprets, but never over-exaggerates the subject's features. I'm always impressed with the gesture and beauty of her calligraphic line work and the fun she has with the details in her illustrations.

Tina Brown @ The Daily Beast/Newsweek

"I am a huge admirer of your work. I have been looking for an artist with your kind of deft line for months. Then found you! I would love you to be our signature artist"

Gary Tam @ Imaginary Forces (for illustrations for titles of 2007's Charlotte's Web)

"We'll all be cheering when we see this in the theatres at the resolution it was meant to be viewed at! Your drawings are beautiful on the computer screen and i'm sure it'll only be more breathtaking on a giant screen!"

Stan Lim @ Imaginary Forces (for illustrations for titles of 2007's Charlotte's Web)

"That was fast! Kathryn, you are an absolute gem."

Intelligent Life Magazine @ Martin Lovelock - Deputy Art Director

This woman is a genius! From architects to authors, actors to musicians, Kathryn not only captures likeness but personality – and all with a well considered flick of the wrist. She is a joy to work with and has become, in the nicest possible way, part of the furniture of Intelligent Life.

Kelly Jean Davis @ Little Owl Urns

I just wanted to let you know that I received such lovely, gushing feedback about the logo and your illo. Again, thank you so much.
