Character & Graphic Illustrator
BLACK EYE is a character brand created in June 2019 by
New Zealand-based graphic illustrator, Ji Yeon Kim.
BLACK EYE aims to produce original character merchandise and illustrations that walks the middle line between the fantastical and mundane while presenting often controversial/taboo/uncomfortable themes in a generally non-confrontational way; opinionated, but non-aggressive.
Some reoccurring themes explored are (but not exclusive to) androgyny, alienation, humanism, human idealism, fatality, and societal decay.
