Kei Meguro was born in Tokyo, Japan and is currently a working illustrator and graphic designer living in New York with her french-bulldog/Pekingese mix assistant, Momo. Meguro began as a self taught artist from a young age and much of what she has learned has come from her interaction and appreciation of great art. She developed her techniques at the School of Visual Arts, where she started out majoring in Fine Arts and received a BFA in Graphic Design in 2010.
Meguro: ‘For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Kei and I refer to myself as the ‘babedrawer’. As much as I enjoy illustrating my ‘babes’, this refers to anyone with character, applies to cute puppers as well, I’ve also learned to draw things outside of my ‘comfort zone’. Managed to completely fell in love with playing with color (try drawing a kale leaf or a brick building!). This opened up so many doors in order to be comfortable enough to call me my own boss’.
