WHY I DESIGN ? | #YiD@kei_maye ----------------------------------------------------
I'm Kei Maye, an illustrator from Tottenham, North London. I've been involved in a number of design disciplines for around 14 years, but have recently found my home in illustration.

I've grown up in a family of artists; my mum and brothers all draw, my mum also used to write poetry, my dad is a musician and my late uncle was a carpenter and sculptor.
I've learned to appreciate how multi faceted the industry is, and the many fun ways to explore creativity.
~~~~~
I can't pinpoint a specific day when it clicked into place, as it's always been there for as long as I can remember.

I was reading an article about an argument that broke out because a woman was breastfeeding her child. It irritated me that something as beautiful as feeding your offspring can elicit such a negative, ridiculous response. Why are women's nipples sexualised where men's are not? That lead me to create the "Mother Bear" piece dedicated to the natural act of breastfeeding.

ArtLife Challenges: Simply put, people not respecting the craft. People not respecting our time or our artistry. People who downplay all we do, failing to realise that creativity is the part of the fabric that binds everything together. A world without creativity and artistry is a world that cannot even be imagined. - Kei Maye
