Hello there! My name is Uijung Kim, originally from South Korea. I live and work in Brooklyn, New York. I’m inspired by my childhood experiences and the family and friends I grew up with. I like making fun, happy and sometimes sad illustrations. My work is strongly rooted in Korean culture through color, tone and narrative. It’s who I am. My main purpose for making art is that I want people to feel happy when they see my illustrations. I want to speak to kids of all ages.

Feel free to contact me for freelance inquiries, or to just say hi!
