About Kim Herbst

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

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

She works at Kongregate for 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, newspapers, gallery shows, and more. She’d love to collaborate with you!
