My Week in Bologna

(click to see bigger!)

"My Week in Bologna" was a personal journal report I made for the Parsons Illustration blog,Words & Pictures, all about my trip to the Bologna Book Fair last March (where I met Frederik Jurk, who I talk about in my journal!). Now it's been printed and made into a real live zine, which will be handed out to prospective students through the university. Pretty cool. Click on the images in this post to read it yourself!


  1. love the story about chilling in the bathroom for a while. i gotta get to Bologna and check out those bathrooms!

    great journal/sketchbook, thanks for sharing.

  2. grrrrreat, and very nice to read !
    I really like the red/blue system, oh yes.

  3. Hi Katie,

    Just a quick note to say that I love your illustrations. Adorable story about your experience at la fiera di Bologna. I was still living in Italy at the time you were there, and remember the fair well. (I was a 'book-shop girl' for several years in Florence.)

    I also wanted to let you know that I included your 'Boyfriend Criteria' illustration on my blog (I REALLY hope you don't mind, I LOVE IT SO MUCH!), which I had originally seen on Design*Sponge. Please let me know if this is a problem for you, I would naturally take it down if you would prefer.

    Keep your illustrations coming...they are SO ENJOYABLE!
