About Mekel

Mekel is Kelly Coates, an Illustrator from Perth, Western Australia.

Growing up I always loved to draw. Thinking career choices when I was 9,
I either wanted to own a 'Mr Whippy' ice cream van or be a fashion
designer. I quickly realised I hated sewing, and really just wanted to
draw the girls in pretty dresses.
I studied Graphic Design and Multimedia, and working now as a
professional designer, am lucky enough to use illustration in my work as
often as I can.

My work is heavily influenced by fashion. I sketch girls. That's it
really. Pretty ones with flowing hair and fabric, and add a splash of
watercolour. I like to use a runny black gel pen, or my trusty pacer pencil.
Inspiration can strike anywhere so I find I can be quickly creative with
my sketch pad, however love to get on the computer too!
