Kim Gee, also known as Kimberly Graziano, is a New York-born designer and illustrator currently calling the Isle of Man home.
I began my career at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, studying Fashion Illustration and Communication Design. My early 20s were spent self-publishing autobiographical comics, before a fateful Kickstarter campaign led to a book deal and contributing over 130 pages of artwork to Build Your Own Website: A Comic Guide to HTML, CSS, and Wordpress (No Starch Press, 2014).
After a collection of internships, I became the one-woman design department at Tasting Table, a Webby-Award Winning food and drink website. I spent almost 4 years designing custom ad campaigns and websites for big name consumer brands, creating editorial illustrations, and eating whatever free food I could find in the Test Kitchen.
In 2016 I moved from New York City to the Isle of Man, where I now run Kim Gee Studio full-time, spending my days whipping up logos and custom watercolor portraits. In May 2017 I founded the Isle of Man Drawing Club, an open social club for local artists, and organize monthly drawing events through our Facebook page.
