Kathryn DiLego – Archways Magazine

Illustrations by Kathryn DiLego for Archways Magazine

Archways, the Nebraska Wesleyan University alumni magazine, commissioned me to illustrate their profile of a recent graduate. My full-color drawings for the cover, two-page spread and infographic accompanied the print and online editions.

The article focuses on Angelo Stabler’s struggles as an NWU student to balance volunteer work mentoring at-risk youth in the city of Lincoln with his commitment to improve the lives of people back home on the Omaha Indian Reservation.

Like a form of productive dreaming, my obsessive but relaxed style of drawing is how I deconstruct and reconstruct the constant visual input of my waking life. I earned a degree from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. My editorial illustrations have been published nationally, and my fine art seen in galleries in New York, Los Angeles and London. In addition to my freelance experience, I held a staff design position with legendary letterpress printer Claudia Laub. I've worked as a Production Designer and created prop art for films, and designed custom print projects for private and corporate clients. I've also self–published trading cards and hand-bound artist's books. 'haunted house of projects' is the name of the studio I share with writer-filmmaker Richard Kaponas. our website: www.hauntedhouseofprojects.com
