“Dagger” 2019, by Ash Catalan.
“This was originally a sketch from my sketchbook that I inked and scanned into a computer to edit. I colored everything in Adobe Photoshop that wasn’t already inked in the paper version. I actually submitted this at the E4youth showcase and it won the best illustration/graphic design category award. That was pretty exciting.”
Bio: I’m Ash Catalan, a 16 year old high school student with the drive to create pieces that people enjoy. I enjoy making drawings that I feel like I can feel proud to call my own. I work in a variety of mediums, and I love to try out new mediums too. It’s been my goal to make a future for myself out of creating artwork and using my passion to create lasting impacts on people. Other than art, I also do work in journalism at my high school’s newspaper as Editor-in-Chief.
