Hello! Another week and another opportunity for you all to see what's on 'The 405 Radar!'. Last week we had a look at the amazing Sufjan Stevens and all the great music he's brought us over the years but this time we take a look at a young illustrator by the name of Kate Copeland! No, I don't have a thing for artists called Kate (check our Kate Moross article here!) but I most definitely have a penchant for amazing Illustrators! Lets check her blurb! "Currently studying BA Illustration at The Arts Institute Bournemouth. Working as a versatile and enthusiastic student, creating images by piecing together cut-out bits of paper and semi realistic drawings. Similarly using this piece-by-piece construction to create hand drawn animations." That's about as much as I know about Kate as a person, oh and that fact that she's only 19, which makes her extraordinary talent quite unbearable! I wish I had that amount of talent now and I'm a full 4 years older than her! Lets have a look at why I feel she deserves to be noticed!

Illustration!
