Kim Herbst

Site Design by RWD, Inc.

Kim Herbst is a freelance illustrator located in San Francisco, CA, on a fairly steep hill.
She spent time living in Taipei, Tokyo, New Jersey, Baltimore, and Brooklyn.

She attended the Maryland Institute College of Art and graduated with a BFA in Illustration.

She loves trying Hot ‘n Sour soup at Chinese restaurants, works on various mobile games, and shares a studio with her husband and a cat named Pixel, even though she’s allergic to cats.

Kim’s work has been featured in magazines, album covers, gallery shows, and children’s educational books. She’d love to collaborate on a new project with you! Contact her at kmh [at ] kimherbst.com
