Working with our volunteer editorial board this summer, Manhattan artists Heath Romine and Jason Stewart, each submitted original draft design proposals for our new promotional and digital cur
Stewart’s designed a “Kat Scratch” unit in a $5 bill featuring the bust of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that s
tands outside the KSU stadium where he delivered one of his very last public speeches. Stewart’s serious approach incorporates such historic elements about the university into his draft design.
Romine’s Kat Scratch design took a more playful and animated approach. Romine’s “Kat Scratch” unit is in a $1 bill and features a debonair grey feline, dressed in deep purple. Staff now affectionately call Romine’s animated Kat Scratch character, the Purple Panther.
