Do you know what’s one the most challenging parts of writing a book like Geek Anthropology of Loki’s Army? Thinking about the cover! Imagining a cover for a book is one of the most difficult things to do. Fortunately, Katrina Hill, the great artist that created the cover for this Loki Book is super easy to work with, a great professional and a sweet human. So, I decided to interview her so that you can know her better.

Pepi: When did you started drawing?

Katrina: I’ve been drawing since I can remember. I always enjoyed it as a kid, and it made me feel closer to my absent father, who was also an artist.

P: Where do you usually get your inspiration from?

K: I get my inspiration from… well a lot of things. The way a leaf is colored or the interesting shadow cast by a random object could just as easily inspire me as a strong emotion or an epic sunset. I try to find inspiration in everything. Lately, my greatest tools for inspiration are nature (sunsets, leaves, mountains, etc…) and the human figure (which I have always loved).

P: What are your favorite mediums for drawing? And drawing materials?

K: I prefer to use either an ebony pencil or nice graphite pencils on bristol paper. If I want to take a drawing further, I will ink it either with micron pens or in Photoshop. Then I might add color. Usually, I would add color in Photoshop, but on occasion I will color with Prismacolor pencils or Academy paints.

P: Have you seen THOR, The Avengers and THOR The Dark World? Who is your favorite character?

K: Yes, yes, and Loki of course!

P: Have you drawn superheroes before? If so, why?

K: Yes, I have drawn many superheroes, though most have been of my own design. I grew up with superheroes and I love them. To be able to create superheroes like the ones I always admired is a wonderful privilege.

P: What was the funniest part of drawing the cover for Geek Anthropology of Loki’s Army?

K: The most fun part was being able to draw Pepi, and to make her a superhero-esque character!
