Hey, I’m Deb/Deborah.(And Jung-Jin/정진 if you’re one of my parents) I am a Korean-born illustrator with a product design background based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Currently, I contract at Lyft as an illustrator, and by night I’m a freelancer in publishing, editorial, and product. My free time is spent eating large amounts of food or training for my upcoming half-marathon. Ask me about the time I was in a fantasy internet cult during my adolescence.
“In Limbo” - Publishing Fall 2021 from First Second Books - a graphic novel memoir about the intersection of Korean-American diaspora and mental health.
