Few artists can bring colour to a story like Hattie Stewart does, so who better to illustrate the one-women celebrity news machine that is Kim Kardashian…
Welcome to week 46 of Yellow, our series of 52 artists illustrating 52 weeks of news. Over the last few months we’ve had artists pen everything from hacking scandals to police shootings, all to show that illustration is much more than a medium of pretty pictures.
Recently we revealed a Kickstarter campaign for Yellow: the collected book, where we’ll collect all 52 original artworks into one beautiful piece of print, and today’s artist is one that we cannot wait to put to paper.
Hattie Stewart is a professional doodler whose work has been exhibited around the world and commissioned by a list of dream clients, not least Playboy and Nylon magazine. We asked Hattie why she chose to illustrate the celebrity news tornado that is Kim Kardashian:
“After being inundated with articles about the Kardashians, I decided to create an homage/satirical illustration based upon which I believe to be the most important article from the Daily Mail: Kim Kardashian admits to eating Cheetos whilst seven months along with Kanye Wests son.”
