Spring 2019 - Total Illustration Refresh - Whats New on DeannaKei.com

Hi everyone! If you’re following along here you’ve probably noticed that I haven’t added a blog post in quite a long time. I’ve been keeping up on Instagram in the meantime, but now I’m finally bringing this site up to speed.

Since my last blog post so much has changed with both my brand (and my personal life: new home, new kitten..etc).

I spent the past year as an Athleisure Designer on the team for an exciting activewear brand, Designed for a second up and coming activewear line, Illustrated for a book, Discovered I love live event sketching, Delved deeper into digital illustration, Explored different sketch subjects including landscapes and animals, Created a bunch of new Bridal Products, and more!

I finally caught a moment to sit down and rework DeannaKei.com and I’m excited for you to see all of the new additions!

What’s New

Fashion

I’ve combined the previous ‘Design’ and ‘Styling’ tabs into one page showcasing my past portfolio work. The idea here was to make it more cohesive and easily accessible.

Live Sketch

I’ve added a whole page dedicated to the behind the scenes fun of a live sketching event. If you’re planning an amazing event you might want to consider having live sketches done! Its a fun interactive way to keep guests entertained and it also leaves them with something memorable to bring home. I’ll be adding a blog post with more details soon but in the mean time check out the page.
