This is actually a piece of art that I’m lucky enough to own. Dejah Thoris as beautifully rendered by Katie Cook on 10″ x 12″ bristol board with pen and watercolor.

Katie Cook

Katie Cook is a comic book artist and illustrator. She enjoys cats.

Katie’s worked on licenses ranging from Star Wars to Marvel Comics to Lord of the Rings to Fraggle Rock and more. Cartooning is all she’s ever wanted to do with her life (besides her ambition to be a muppet or a robot as a child).

Katie’s writing project My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #1 isn’t even out yet and there have been over 90,000 pre-orders for the book.  Awesome.

You can find out more about Katie here, maybe follow her on Twitter, and be sure, SURE to read GRONK, her amazing web comic.

During Dejah Thoris week, I’ll be presenting work by amazing artists, women offering their interpretation of the title character of A Princess of Mars. I expect to spotlight a different artist every day this week. Please support them by visiting their web sites and buying their awesome stuff. They deserve it.
