Hi, I’m Thea Kable.


I’m a designer and PhD candidate working on the unceded lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. I’ve designed publications including a zine about Biosphere 2, an anthology of kids’ stories, and a book about hopeful futures. My illustrations have appeared alongside pirate-y prose, childrens’ stories, and health articles. I also make comics about space settlement and the biosphere. Want to see more?

I was delighted to work on this anthology publication for Story Factory, alongside Carmen Zeng and Spec Studio. This anthology contains the output of two semesters of writing workshops run by Story Factory with young people from under-privileged schools.

The publication had a short turn-around from beginning of project to print-ready delivery. For the production of this publication, Carmen and I collaborated on a design language and approach and then individually contributed half of the total internal illustrations. I also illustrated the front cover and type-set the internals of the book.

The stories were continued in Fredrico Saint Hidoka, The Malicious Thief, The Bird in the Antique Shop, and Bryan.
