Kate Quinby is an amazing little illustrator out of Seattle/Providence, RI that I came across in Communication Arts. (Seriously, a great issue.) By day she’s working for the Man at Starbucks Global Creative (their in-house ad/design department) and by night for herself under the name Croak and Hum.
Her philosophy is as fresh as her illustrations, “Don’t get caught. I feel as though I’ve tricked the universe into letting me draw pictures for a living, and I don’t have to make any secret deals or sell my soul…I’m hoping that if I keep busy and work hard, no one will notice that I’m actually doing what I wanted to do as a child.”
