KEI Garou ((ケイガロウ) aka. KEI) is a Japanese cartoonist and was the illustrator for VOCALOID2s Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin & Len, Megurine Luka, Lily V2 and V3, and Prize galaco.

He was born in Chitose, Hokkaido in April 1981, and started drawing fan works when he was a student. His watercolor-like moe style caught the notice of the publisher Dengeki Bunko, and he made his debut as an illustrator for the novel Kiseki no Hyougen. In 2007, Crypton requested him to draw an illustration for their first Character Vocal Series product, Hatsune Miku. Crypton also provided KEI with detailed concepts. However, Crypton said it was not easy to explain what a "VOCALOID" was like to him, and KEI said he could not create an image of a "singing computer" at first, as he did not know what a "synthesizer" was. It took him more than a month to finish. His illustration supported the sale of this software and sparked the VOCALOID trend. His fame led to the following works for the Kagamines, Luka, Lily and galaco.
