“Katness Everdeen”- Girl Warrior – “The Hunger Games”


“Katness Looking into Herself” – journal pages – oil pastel, gouache.

I did these drawings a couple of months ago while I was reading the Hunger Games and I visualized the character of Katness Everdeen with dark hair and grey eyes.  I admit I got caught up in the social and cultural aspect of the whole story!  I haven’t seen the film and probably won’t.  But the books created visual images for me and I wanted to try and draw this young woman warrior.   I read a lot, and I often gain ideas for art from the characters I read about.

  1. She’s fantastic olivia. I haven’t read the books myself, (just the excerpt from Kindle) but from what I did read you captured her spirit here, and isn’t that what art is about? You know i’m a big fan of your work, so I won’t gush on, just happy to see some new work up on the blog. 🙂

  2. Thanks, Judee – I know its been a while since I posted. I go through phases with this blog thing. I would like to post more, but sometimes I just don’t have anything to show – I’m thinking about something, or I’m in the middle of something artwise, and the posting just gets forgotten about until I finish! These drawings were just drawings until yesterday when I finished painting them in. I’m working on a bigger canvas now – so I probably won’t post anything until that’s finished. Thank you for all your nice comments!
