Meet the Artist

Hi! I'm Kathleen Flask, the fox from malta!

I was born in 2005, in the beautiful small island known as Malta. I've been drawing ever since I can remember as I've always been known to carry around a sketchbook and pencil with me where ever I go, even to school. I love to draw animals, of every shape and size, and love to create my own creatures. I am also fond of crafts, and I love to sew and build things whenever I can. I am also a fan of music, and love to play the piano. My native language is Maltese, my second language is English and my third language is German, which I have a B2 certificate in. In regards to school, I am currently studying towards my A-Levels.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.I use a drawing tablet for my digital art, and markers, pens and pencil for my traditional art. But I dabble in other mediums as well.I love collecting small animal figures, soft-toys, and I love books, mainly comics and animal encyclopedias. I also love cartoons, and watch them frequently. Superheros movies are also one of my top faves.

✰! Meet the Characters !✰

Fox [Tibetan Fox]: She's my fursona/mascot who represents me as an artist. She's quirky, shy, and very loyal.

Sunday [Red Ruffed Lemur]: One of my main OCs. She's a kindhearted soul who always does her best to brighten someone's day.

Felicita [Cardinal]: Another main OC. She's always cheerful and she's very jolly at heart, but she can also be quite clumsy at times.

Malta [Shrew]: My artist mascot. Malta is patriotic, sweet, and quite the hard worker.

Red [Wolf]: My secondary sona, a feisty trouble maker. She's rough, loud, and proud.

Ima [Melitketz]: 2nd secondary sona. She came from the stars and is super bright and jolly. Very quirky alien cat.

Demons and Umbrellas

'Demons and Umbrellas' is a short comic done for my portfolio but I ended up not including in the journal. The story is the first encounter between 3 characters. I might eventually do more with these characters, but for now enjoy this short little comic :)
Characters all belong to me!

The Comic

Asparagus and the Alien

'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 and add our little illustrations digitally.
Characters all belong to me! And photos were also taken by me :)

Payment

To be done via Paypal or Revolut50% deposit to be given before I start the commission
(this only counts for commissions that cost more than €15)

T.O.S

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

  • Price is per character - for extra characters in the same image/scene, it's only 70% of the original price.

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

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

  • You are only allowed to make 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.

  • You can request a refund at any time, but you CANNOT ask for a refund if the commission has been completed/sent.

  • 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.

  • I am often fast when it comes to completing a commission, but please do NOT bug me if I take longer than a month. I will usually have it done in less than a week, and will give notice if I would require more time, but sometimes stuff happen, so be patient - Thank You.

  • 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.

  • Not all examples are characters that I own as these are commissions or art I've done for people or friends. If you're an owner of one of these designs and would like the example removed, please let me know :)
