Kemi Maiillustrator



WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT TYPE OF CREATIVE ARE YOU? My name is Kemi Mai and I’m a self-taught artist based in the UK.
HOW DID YOU GET INTERESTED IN DIGITAL ILLUSTRATION/PAINTING? I bought a tablet with the intent to use it for something else entirely, but somehow I ended up painting. It was kind of accidental. I didn’t draw at all when I was a kid, but my interest really began to snowball after those first few months, when I realised that creating art was both something I enjoyed and something I could improve at. I’ve been painting for almost two years now. READ FULL INTERVIEW HEREInk & Arrows Links:website // twitter // facebook // google+ // issuu // storenvy // instagram

I was just here wondering how you actually look, in person. So it got me thinking, do/have you ever drawn, sketched, or painted yourself? If so, did you like the piece(s)?

People say this to me so often! I use myself for reference sometimes but just things like light, hand poses, ect, so nothing that you could recognise, but that’s it. I’ve never drawn myself because I just haven’t really felt the need to but seeing as this is one the questions I get asked most frequently, maybe I will give it a go sometime. :)

What's so special about your work besides the point that it's digital. You do the same thing over and over again, I don't find meaning except for a beautiful face. Have you ever, or going to, do something different?

You seem to be under the illusion that I somehow owe you entertainment through the viewing of my work. To clarify, I do not, nor does any other artist who is creating personal work for themselves. It’s okay if you find my work repetitive or boring, that’s irrelevant to me. I’m not asking you to understand my work either. My advice to you would be to go ahead and create your own work that is full of everything which you perceive mine to lack, then feel free to show me how it’s done. Until then, don’t worry so much about what I’m creating or what I am going to create, because I’ll just be busy over here continuing to get paid.

So in love with your work and I was amazed to learn you are self taught. Do you only draw and paint digitally or have you tried other mediums?

You’re lovely, thank you! I’ve recently been exploring new mediums like watercolour, ink, and charcoal. I’m hoping to get around to oil in the near future, too.
