Ever wondered who the faces were behind the sick artwork featured in the Compass every month? Well, you’re in luck because this month we caught up with artist Kit Collins to get to know the lass behind issue #104’s artwork!
Where are you from? Where do you live now?
I am from upstate New York, a small town east of Albany called Averill Park. Currently I live in Medford.
Where/When did you first pick up the compass?
It’s hard to remember because it was probably seven years ago! I bet it was at the Garment District or some Camberville coffee shop.
Favorite Compass distro spot:
Dorchester Art Project! <3
If your art was a dog breed what would it be?
That’s a hard question because I draw SO MANY DOGS all the time. Maybe my art would be a border collie because I just love working on projects (to a fault sometimes!).
What’s next? /What are you working on!
I have a few things on deck right now! I’m finishing up a mural commission at the moment, the design is a map of Boston neighborhoods. I’m also working on the 2019 installment of my annual page-a-day dog calendar (see previous question). I have some smaller commissions up next: a custom relief print; wedding invitations; and an illustrated map of New York. I’m also planning a mural project with my new workspace, Spaceus in Harvard Square, that will be a continuation of my “Watercolor Women” series on a very large scale.
