I’m Katie. I’m a “20-something” living in northeast Florida and working in human resources as a staffing manager. Before my exciting office days, I was big into art. After college, it got harder to find the time/motivation to continue this while working. My goal with this blog is to give myself a reason to sketch (or do some artistic thing) on a regular basis. I make no promises that anything will be decent-looking. Read at your own risk.

Cheers! -K

Hi Katie,

I would be very interested in using your AYBS watercolor image at this link on my site with your permission:


I run an official “Are You Being Served?” site at:


There are a lot of images and info pertaining to all the cast members.

There is also a lot of other stuff for the AYBS fan including a blog, forum and an online role playing game.

Enjoy and let me know.

Hi Katie.
Can I use your vulture skatch for a t-shirt?

Please send me an email at dreamhalffull@gmail.com to discuss pricing for that. Let me know your plans for use – e.g. how many shirts, are you planning to sell them, etc.
Thank you,
