Art That’s Cool – Mary Kate Mcdevitt

Mary is a letterer and an illustrator. What I love about her is that you can see her character in every piece she creates.

Where does she gets her inspiration from?

Well on her about page she says she “enjoys drinking coffee, thrifting, riding bikes, watching News Radio with her boyfriend Fred DiMeglio and renovating her home.”  Take a look at her work and see for yourself.  Mary, in her class, suggests that students choose topics of interests to create a hand lettered piece.

Mark teaches classes on skillshare and she  writes books that help us newbies learn too. I love her playful style! Perhaps you have seen her work at Target!

I remember seeing this card and thinking wow I love this.  Later on I came across her class and that led me to her site.

Which leads me to an important discovery, every artist has a style that people connect with. Her words are whimsical and play. Check out her site and you will see what I mean.

I am also starting to notice a pattern here. All the artists seem to be humble, kind and have a sense of community. What do you think?
