Mai Ly Degnan is a Florida born illustrator, currently based in Baltimore, MD. She earned her BFA in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design, as well as her MFA in Illustration Practice at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Mai Ly is obsessed with tedious line work, pattern making, and 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.
