Duck Articles by Kate Barnett

Here’s a whimsical, yet dreary piece of mine I did a few years ago. I was taking a drawing class to gauge my interest in college – there’s none – and had a great opportunity to¬† learn to draw water from a Floridian! It wasn’t intended though, we had to pick random objects and make a scene with them. Naturally, I got a little pirate rubber duck, and a bone – still not sure what kind of bone it was – but it ended up making a great figure-head for a pirate ship!

None-the-less, it turned out to be a great depiction of my style: dark and gloomy, a little rough around the edges, but fun and maybe a little corky.

Kate Barnett is an artist whose moody gothic illustrations create an interesting counterpoint to her conservative art. Her art and writing can be viewed at

    That’s great! Every four and a half year old boy dreams about “Ducks of the Caribbean”, (if I can remember that far back). How creative!
