'Sunbathing' - My not so fluffy kitty, Papillon.

Welcome to my website! I am an illustrator/product designer based in NYC. 

I came to the states in1990 with my family from Korea. Studied Illustration at Moore College of Art and Design and Rhode Island School of Design. After school, I have done editorial illustrations for the Philadelphia inquirer, Bostonia Magazine, Walker and Company. Although, the projects were fun, I realized, doing editorial illustrations was a hard way to make a living. I got a full time job at the Franklin Mint. As a staff illustrator, designed figurines and Home decors. Five years later. I quit the job and decided to freelance. For almost 10 years, I have freelanced for various companies designing home decors, jewelries and greeting cards. I also had an opportunity to design holiday displays for stores in all over the NYC. It was the most exciting yet stressful job I have ever had.  In 2014, my long time side project, a picture book idea was picked up by Hyperion/ Disney. The children's book titled, 'Very fluffy Kitty Papillon' will debut in fall of 2016.


"Rotem Moscovich at Disney-Hyperion has acquired debut author-illustrator A.N. Kang's The Very Fluffy Kitty Papillon, about a sassy cat who is so fluffy that he floats. It sold in a four-house auction in a three-book, six-figure deal for North American rights, brokered by  HeatherAlexander at Pippin Properties, in her first deal as an agent. The projected pub date is fall 2016"  -Publishers Weekly - Sept 9, 2014.
