With the new year coming soon, and the release of many of the projects I have been working on, I will be making many adjustments to my site!
For now, my store is CLOSED. I want to focus on making sure that Swan Lake gets released on time. I plan to reopen my store on Black Friday! So stay tuned.
Thanks for being patient with me!
There is still time to support this project. The Kickstarter Campaign ends on August 8th at 10 AM CT
A pledge of $25 or more secures a Pre-Order of the book!
Keep On Dancing
The 2017 Calendar is now available for Pre-Order! This desk calendar features illustrations inspired by Ballroom Dances such as the Waltz, Tango, Samba, Jive, and many more!
Click the photo above to check out the store, or click here!
I'm very excited about these illustrations as they are very near and dear to my heart! I had such a fun time designing these characters, and I can't wait to share them all with you!
Here's some previews!
To go along with this year's calendar, I will be releasing a corresponding Coloring Book! So now you'll be able to color in these dancers how you'd like!
More details are to come, but I'm estimating a release in early fall!
Late Bloomer Film
This summer, I joined a team of super awesome and creative people to help Kadanimation create the short film titled Late Bloomer! This has been such a great learning experience for me so far as I've helped with Character Designs, Storyboards, and now even Animation!
Here is some of the work so far:
I'm so excited to be part this project, and I'm happy to have made new friends from it! Keep up to date by checking out the #LateBloomerFilm tag on Social Media!
Back to school...
So, not only am I keeping up with all these projects, but classes begin again on the 29th. Although it's gonna be tough to juggle all of this - I am TOTALLY up for the challenge!
Keep up with me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook (@katidoodlesmuch for all of them!) as I post most frequently there.
Reminiscing about my old project, "TDIDWTS"
This is what inspired the Ballroom Dance theme for the 2017 calendar! My love for Total Drama and Dancing With the Stars is what went into creating this crossover "series" that I started it in Middle School! I worked on it for 3 years.
I have the videos Unlisted on youtube since I used quite a bit of content (music & themes) that I didn't have permission for. I also did it at a time where I used a fake name (Susan) on the internet and don't want people to be confused. haha.
But if anyone is interested in seeing the project that made me decide to become involved in the animation / illustration industry - I can send you the link to the playlist!
For now, here is the final episode! :,) I get teary eyed watching it because of how much time, love, and effort went into it! Plus I made life long friends because of it. (You guys know who you are!!)
Ladies and Gentlemen - it has been my dream for several months now to release a book inspired by Swan Lake. With this Kickstarter - that dream can come true!
Katidoodlesmuch Presents: Swan Lake, a fully illustrated story inspired by the famous ballet. The fairytale comes to life through the illustrations and original storytelling of Kati Treu.
However, even a small run (50 books) is a bit too pricey for a one woman show.
So let's make this project a reality with crowdfunding!
A Kickstarter Fundraiser will begin on Monday, July 18th and run for 3 weeks. More info will be found on the kickstarter page once it is launched.
There are 9 tiers of rewards ranging through donations $1 - $200.
Every little bit helps! So do what you can do help make this girl's dream of independently printing a book come true!
Summer vacation is here - and I'm eager to doodle much! Rates are slightly lower because of my extra availability this season.
Email me with questions if you have any, and I hope to work on some fun new doodles soon. <3
12 Fairy Tale Stories.
Mugs, Posters, Pillows, and Tote Bags.
Once upon a time there was a dorky young redhead who loved to doodle. She set off on an adventure to illustrate her favorite fairytales for everyone to enjoy. She researched and became inspired by the original tellings of these stories in order to create accurate illustrations. These drawings lived happily ever after within the pages of a Calendar.
Now your favorite illustrations from the Katidoodlesmuch 2016 Calendar are available on a variety of new products!
All items are fulfilled through Printful!
Purchase any item from this line through June 30th, and you'll be automatically entered to win a free signed copy of the 2016 Calendar.
I love Descendants, so of course I"m totally in LOVE with Dove Cameron's video to Genie in a Bottle! Check it out below!
She covered this Xtina classic PERFECTLY! And I couldn't help but fall in love with her Genie Chic look. I immediately felt inspired to doodle her.
*Sorry the video starts in the middle of the drawing! I didn't even think to start filming until I was pretty far in.*
**I am in no way sponsored or affiliated with Disney Channel. This video was created as a tribute to Dove & Disney and is for my personal enjoyment. Just spreading my love and my art!**

Please share this around! I would love for Dove to see it!
(I really need to post more often....oops!)
It's my spring break! And that means there is just a little over a month left of this semester at MIAD. I can't believe how fast the time has flown by. On March 3rd, I declared my major in Illustration! I can't wait to begin my education in this discipline next year.
Ideally, I would like to use this summer to prepare for the upcoming year. I will be intensely studying photoshop & illustration methods. I will be doing fanart, personal work, and overall just a lot of studies. I can't wait to share them with you all.
Also, please look forward to seeing some of my work from school! After this semester is over, I plan on creating a page in my gallery for my assignments. (for now, you can see some of my school work on Instagram.)
Ideally, I would like to just focus on my art this summer, but I most likely will be picking up a part time job. Even with that, I'm totally willing to take on freelance work. Please check out my commission price guide. Share it around if you want as well.
Many thanks to all of you who have been inquiring about commissions these past few months and thanks for making my 3rd year of $20 Couple Doodles a HUGE success! Check them out in the commission gallery.
Lastly, I am now on tumblr! Give me a follow if you want and be sure to reblog my work. :) I'll be uploading finished work, sketches, commissions, doodles, etc on there.
Thanks for stickin with me!
Tomorrow, 11/26/2015, I will be re-opening my store! Sorry for such a long hiatus, but I've been so busy with college. I hope I will make up for it with all the fun things I'm putting up for sale this weekend.
Most importantly - My 2016 Calendar will be available for Pre-Order starting tomorrow night. (I'm gonna wait until after all the Thanksgiving shenanigans to open up...) The exact time is still TBA, so stay tuned to my Instagram and Twitter for any updates. Or just check back here sometime on Friday for sure! I would wait until Black Friday BUT I'M JUST SO EXCITED! I can't wait!
I will have a 30% off sale going as well in honor of Black Friday weekend lasting 11/26-11/29.
The first 15 pre-orders will receive a FREE handmade "The Art of 2015" minibook featuring all the doodles from the past calendar.
Also, I will have a few prints and posters up for grabs as well.
I'm so excited about getting my shop up and running again. Please note that calendars will not be shipped until after 12/11. All others will ship as soon as possible from the date of purchase.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Sending you all warm hugs and snuggles. Thanks for all the support.
Lots of love,
Who is Kati?
I'm a fairy mermaid muppet princess who doodles much. Illustrator by day, Fan Girl by night. My inspiration comes from all things cute and girly, and I love making work that inspires young women.
