Alex Moshakis writes in his great blog “It’s nice that”
about Katias work:
“When I was a kid, my uncle would draw for my sister and I on request. He was good at almost everything – composite animals, things exploding, other family members on ‘natural highs’ – and I was 90-95% sure he was the best illustrator I knew. This was before I discovered other people’s work, and began to feel that maybe my uncle’s ability was limited. (Perhaps it was dated also, although I can’t remember.) What I’m trying to say is this: Katia Fouquet has fifty times the illustrative ability of pretty much everybody else in the world, which is why she’s
included in Nobrow’s Graphic Cosmogony
, for example, and my uncle and everyone else isn’t.”
