About the Artist:
Jeehye Kim (Paperobott) is a Korean illustrator born and raised in Hawaii, now residing in California. Her art is mainly influenced by emotions of sadness/darkness, and tells different stories through little monsters and characters called Little Ingans. Some stories are told in one painting using watercolor and ink, while some are told through post-it drawings animated together frame by frame. While her art may seem cute, it usually has a hidden touch of how she views the beauty in darkness.
