Esther Y. Kim Illustrations & Things by illustrator Esther Y. Kim is a one-woman operation in Chicago. Recurring themes in her work include bold colors, intricate patterns, and a touch of 90’s teen nostalgia. More than anything, her creations are fun, quirky, and made with love.
We are excited to welcome Esther Y. Kim to the Chicago Artisan Market at Morgan MFG (401 N. Morgan St., Chicago) on Sunday, July 21, 2019 (10am-4pm) along with Chicago’s finest artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art.
Esther Y. Kim creates original illustrations and prints them with archival paper and inks at a non-profit community print lab in Chicago. Her “Things” are made using up-cycled, re-used plastic (e.g. take-out trays and food packaging) to create handmade jewelry and accessories.
Buyer’s Tip: Esther accepts unwanted, used #6 plastic from customers in exchange for a discount off her items.
Esther Y. Kim earned her BFA in Illustration from Columbia College in Chicago, and enjoys bergamot, hot sauce and mood rings.
