Who are you, where are you from?
Hi I’m Laura Kay an illustrator and graphic art student from the US.
What do you do?
I am presently illustrating a children’s book, I draw and blog alot! In addition I’m trying to complete my degree in desktop and web publishing. But I’d really love to focus solely on fashion illustration.
Why do you do it?
I do it because I love it. Art is my oxygen.
How do you create these images?
My favorite mediums to illustration with are ink and watercolor. However when I’m short on time I go digital (bamboo tablet, scan and photoshop..)
Who are your influences?
I am influenced mostly by fashion bloggers and illustrators. I love checking out the work of fashion artists Ruben Toledo , Katie Rodgers of Paperfashion.net. ,Jeffrey Fulvimari and fashion blogger, Susie Bubble.
What inspires your work?
I get inspired by getting out,traveling and looking at all the unique people in the world. Fashion greatly inspires me as well. I try to expose myself to as many fashion runways as I can (online),fashion magazines and fashion blogs.
What do you like?
I like when I can follow what I set out to do, and not get side tracked by everything artists get sidetracked from 🙂
What don’t you like?
I don’t like sushi.
