When I was 6 I used to sneak into our neighbor's house so that I could look at their old Dungeons and Dragons books. I was genuinely creeped out and at the same time completely fascinated with the creatures that inhabited those alternate worlds. It had a lasting impression on me, so much so that I'm currently working as a freelance illustrator in Philadelphia, devoting all my time to creating new worlds and creatures of my own. I've illustrated for indie toy makers, skateboard companies, and I've designed many tattoos. I could go on the whole spiel about how I'm a wizard going into dungeons to find you the creepiest critters but I'm honestly just a guy who lives with his wife and cats and loves looking at art, talking about art, and making art. I am driven by an urge to create interesting and diverse characters to inspire a new generation. I create art out of joy and I hope you enjoy my art.

Keegan Kaya McGee fast facts! Pro LGBTQ. Loves animals, vegetarian (was vegan for 22 years). I live with a disability, Ankylosing Spondylitis, my spine is slowly fusing together(yay!). Listens to metal but my favorite bands are ones with female vocalists because the metal industry is a sausage fest, amiright?
