About the Artist

Merħba! I'm Kathleen Flask, also known as Fox-From-Malta, a Maltese artist and illustrator who sometimes also dabbles in animation, sewing, crafting and clay sculpting! I work with traditional and digital media - whatever I find, I work with.I have always been known to draw, even during classes, carrying around a paper and pencil everywhere I go! I am currently in my first year of BFA in Digital Art at the University of Malta.Aside from art, my interests include Zoology, Languages and Music. I am very fond of animals, and they're always a subject of my creations. Aside from Maltese and English, I also know German (B2.2 Level). As a hobby, I study music and music theory (Grade 2, Grade 5 respectively)

I have sold drawings and creations locally and abroad (some countries being America, Austria, Germany, UK & Italy). I even have a small business I co-own with my mother, where we sell keychains locally and more often abroad via our Etsy: PatchyzCreations.

Portfolio of Work


Comics & Narratives

Asparagus & The Alien (2022)

The adventures of a little earth mouse and her new strange friend.

'Asparagus and the Alien' is a short story presented in the form of 21 illustrations I had made as a part of a project for school. The aim was to take photographs of our library and add our little illustrations in digitally.I took all the photographs myself, and the characters were designed by me specifically for this project. I thought I would make the main characters mice, to play with perspective and angles.

References & Extra Art:



Umbrellas & Demons (2023)

A cat, a talking umbrella shaped like a duck, and a little demon... what an odd pairing.

'Demons and Umbrellas' is a short 5-page comic I had done for my A-Level, which I ended up not including in the final portfolio journal. I wanted to create characters and then center a short comic around them as a comic example for my folio.

References & Extra Art:


Il-Gebla (il-Mara Ħoxna) - Leli - Tittu - Il-Ħamiema. [from left to right]

Leli u Tittu (2023 -)

The silly adventures of a hungry cat, Leli, and his tired best friend, Tittu.

'Leli u Tittu' is a maltese comic I have in the works, whose pilot comic, I hope to finish as a full graphic novel someday.The story follows a little black cat whose always looking for food, Leli. His friend Tittu, who's more logical, joins him in his hunt for food (mostly to keep him from getting himself in trouble).
Characters all belong to me.

Concepts & Early Art / Doodles :



Ms. Werewolf (2024)

Who knew that monsters and magical creatures were real? And for you to find out... all a little witch had to do was turn you into a werewolf.

'Ms. Werewolf' is a mini comic created for an assignment, which I do want to turn into a full novel someday, further exploring the story of these characters.The story centers around a witch and her teacher, whom she turned into a werewolf by accident. In a race against the clock, Winnie (the witch) has to learn all the spells of wizardry to turn her teacher, Ms. Lulu (werewolf) back into a human before her first full moon transformation that can turn the spell permanent.

Terms of Service

Please read these terms before asking for a commission, especially bigger ones.
If a client commissions me, they have automatically agreed to these terms. I will keep this updated periodically.
LAST UPDATED: 22/11/2023

General

  • For bigger commissions* (such as the scene commission and all traditional commissions) a deposit of half the price must be payed at the start of the commission.

  • The deposit must be payed in order for me to start the commission. Do not pay unless I have first accepted your commission.*

  • Do not ask for a commission if you don't have the money to pay for it. For the deposit you will only get a 24hr chance to pay, and then another 24hr chance to pay for the remaining pay once the commission is complete. For the non-deposit commissions, you will have to pay within 48hrs.

  • The final commission will only be sent without the preview text when full price is paid. All works get sketches preview. Deposit works get progress sketches and outline preview.

  • I have the right to decline a commission if I do not feel comfortable making it.

  • You are only allowed to ask for minor edits to the finished piece! (Like slight colour changes, etc.) - For the more detailed commissions, I will send sketch/lineart wips to get confirmation if they're ok with you, but this is not for every type.

  • For larger edits, you will have to pay extra. This is since I will be redrawing big elements of the work, so that takes more time.

  • You can request a refund at any time, but you CANNOT ask for a refund if the commission has been coloured/completed/sent. - once a refund has been sent, you will not receive the commission, even if the sketch/lineart has been started.

  • Prices are bound to change. My prices can increase in the future, but I usually will have this be done before an opening in order not to confuse buyers. Please do not come ask for a refund if you bought a commission at a previous price, or a discount.

Shipping

  • Work shipped internationally will be shipped with registered shipping unless buyer requests otherwise. The price also includes the cost of supplies to ship said work, such as package, wrapping, etc.

  • I would need to know the address to calculate the final shipping price. It won't range more than 5 euros for local or 20 euro for international. Prices would of course vary, so do not be alarmed if shipping would cost more than 20. If you would like a quote on shipping , feel free to ask :)

  • I would require a name in order to send by shipping, it has to be a visible name, but it can be just your name initial and full surname.

  • I am not responsible for any damage the package goes through once I have sent it to the post. If you receive a damaged or missing parcel/letter let me know so we can discuss it further.

Publishing / Commercial Use

  • As the artist, I have the right to share commissioned work for self advertising purposes, unless the client specifically requests otherwise.

  • Feel free to repost my works on other social medias, BUT VISIBLE CREDIT MUST BE GIVEN. You can tag my social medias, but it's not a must, even a 'Created by Fox-From-Malta' would be appreciated.

  • If you received a gift, trade or commissioned artwork from me, you are free to print for personal reasons. You cannot however sell copies of this artwork!

  • Book Illustration commissions are the only exception to these specific terms! If you want to publish a book and have me as your illustrator, contact me through email ([email protected]).

Wall Paintings (2023)

Wall paintings I had done in a classroom, with the help of my Mum. (I designed and lined the works, while she coloured them in according to my suggestions).
The task was to decorate a school classroom, that was to act as a mini library. I wanted each animal to be recognizable and represent a few nationalities that the students at the school come from. Plus we tried to be playful with some of the locations of the paintings (eg. with the switch or on the white board).

Fanart and minor redesigns done for characters from the show The Skinner Boys. I wanted to see what I'd change or keep in each character's design... using it as personal practice, even in regards to drawing human characters.

I DO NOT OWN THESE CHARACTERS - ONLY TAKE CREDIT FOR THE ART AND DESIGNS.

We had to study the book in school, and I fell in love with the characters inside it, so much so that I created cat versions of them - as well as created an idea for a potential sequel story featuring a next generation character, Alex.

A Demon and a Deer (2019 -)

A Demon and a Deer is my take on some Christmas classics. The story follow Krampus (a young krampus in training) and Ruith, St. Nic's assistant who's assigned to take care of Krampus and train him. They are joined by many of Nic's elves (all based on one hue of the rainbow), goblins, the other 8 reindeer, as well as many other creatures like fairies, nutcrackers, sheep, and much more.I've created designs for almost all the characters in the story (as viewed below) and hope to continue doing all the others, as well as one day publish the characters story for everyone to read and enjoy.

Alice in Wonderland - 2024

What if Wonderland was this colourful psychedelic place filled with anthropermorphic animals and no humans... and what if Alice, the little human girl who ventured into this world, started to become less human the longer the stayed there?
- - -
Assignment for uni, where I gave my own interpretation of the Alice in Wonderland tale and characters.
The depicted scene is that when Alice starts to get frustrated with the caterpillar's remarks. His faces, each showing an emotion, are curious and relaxed, yet also annoyed as well.
