Hi! it's me, Kimball. 

I'm an illustrator and graphic designer and I live in Los Angeles, California.

To fire off some facts: I grew up splitting my time between New York City and Colorado. I went to school at Washington University in St. Louis, where I majored in Communications Design (except for that one semester I was an English major). I spent a majority of my youth believing that belting any outfit around the waist made it more flattering (including, of course, t-shirts and dresses worn with 3/4 length leggings underneath), that if I believed real hard and kept enough photos of him in my locker I would one day marry Orlando Bloom, and that a full can of Campbell's Chunky Beef Stew – the official soup of the NFL, mind you – was a well-rounded breakfast.

Over the years, I regret to inform you, my style has evolved and my confidence in Orlando's burning passion for me has waned. I'm much happier to inform you, however, that I no longer eat Chunky Beef Stew for breakfast each morning, and that my social life has benefitted tremendously from the adjustment.

This is my portfolio website and it is a collection of some of my work and some other things that have absolutely nothing to do with my work. I hope you have fun; I hope you like what I’ve made; I hope you are so overwhelmed with compassion for ten-year-old me you’re inspired to like twenty three year old me just as much. But maybe more than anything, I hope you like carrot cake – because if all else fails and you don't like what you see here I will send some directly to your home as a bribe.

Email me at kimballslade@gmail.com with questions or with your mailing address for the carrot cake (serious carrot cake inquiries only, please).

Also, my resume is available right here, if you want it.
