Katja Vartiainen is a Master of Fine Arts, painting. She calls herself a multi-dilettante because she has done doodle books, illustration, two graphic novels, teaching, and even upholstery. Her visual inspiration comes from fine arts as well as from everything on this curious, tragicomic piece of a rock, and its creatures floating in space.
With her husband they share a taste for humour, cats, and nature. They live in Southern Germany.
‘Half Done Fun is an entertaining drawing/doodle book that makes it easier for those who want to practice their drawing and observation skills. It offers symmetrical (or closely symmetrical) things, humans, and animals that are half drawn so you can focus on finishing the other half and not worrying about ‘what to draw’.
For children over 11 years and adults, as well.’
