KEH (Kate Hayward)

》Artist, tea drinker, daydreamer.
Cambridge, UK - 80's child. 

I am a self-taught artist. I use traditional media - mostly markers - to create original illustrations, cartoons & comics inspired by nature, fashion, sci-fi, fantasy & horror.

I first become interested in creating my own artwork at the age of thirteen, when I was on a massive computer games & comics kick. I then got into Japanese animation and comics, which has continued to influence my work ever since. These days I draw inspiration from animation, comics, movies, art nouveau, photography, fashion, nature, sci-fi, fantasy & horror.

I mostly work with fineline pens and markers, with effects added with gel ink pens, pencil crayons, watercolours & other media - and often a few little tweaks in photoshop!
I used to do a lot of colouring and even linework in photoshop, however I now almost exclusively work with traditional media.

I am absolutely flattered that people might like to use my artwork! However, please do not use it for anything without written permission from me first. I take commissions, so why not request a piece exclusively for yourself?
