Katie Commodore’s parents could have told you when she was a toddler that she would grow up to be an artist, despite years of her insisting that she was going to be an astronaut and them sending her to Space Camp twice. Never giving up her dreams of painting Martian landscapes and testing low gravity pastels, she went to art school, which surprisingly lacked the rigorous science background NASA required, although she did buy a car once from someone who worked for NASA. But what art school lacks in science and math they make up in spades when it comes to teaching art, which is what she was good at anyway. Commodore now resides in Brooklyn, with all the other artists, where she spends her days painting incredibly detailed pattern based portraits of her exhibitionist friends and longing for the day when the space program starts an artist’s residency.
