Mai Ly Degnan

Maily Degnan is a Florida born illustrator who received her BFA at the Savannah College of Art and Design.  She is currently living in Baltimore and studying at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she is pursuing her MFA in Illustration Practice.  Maily is obsessed with tedious line work and pattern making, along with creating humorous illustrations that make light of unfortunate events.  She enjoys juxtaposing upsetting subject matter with children's-book-like illustrations. This pairing of opposites often comes across as quirky and offbeat, which is exactly her aesthetic.  Some of Maily's favorite things include stop motion, pugs, and John Waters
