COOL HUNTING

We asked Brooklyn-based artist Kim Herbst to tell us about her distinctive illustration style.

It's usually described as an organic looking graphic novel. Recently, I've had pieces accepted in CMYK Magazine and the Los Angeles Society of Illustrators. I hope to have a few short comics printed together in the near future as a mini-anthology involving origami. As a child, I always attempted to copy my mother, who folded cranes and other beautiful animals out of paper. But they never came out as crisp and clean as her own. I suppose drawing them crisp and clean with brush and ink was a better alternative!
