Soyeon Kim—Web Comic


Soyeon Kim (김소연) is a Korean-born Canadian artist living in Pickering, Ontario. Inspired by nature, she creates a world that is at once both real and fantastical in three-dimensional dioramas by carefully arranging the painted and texturized paper cutouts.

She is the illustrator of seven picture books: You Are Stardust, Wild Ideas, Is This Panama?, Sukaq and the Raven, You Are Never Alone, A Last Goodbye and Once Upon an Hour.
