Finally, I'm able to update my website!
2 years after U2, Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception was released in Nov 2011. I feel bad to share these with you guys some 4 months later but I give a pat on my shoulder to finally putting this up. I left Naughty Dog after U3 last year to joint the team here at Marvel working on Thor 2. So it'll be another long wait till the next update but for now hope you enjoy these new images.

3 years ago, I had an awesome opportunity to be part of the God of War III team and now I'm finally able to share my work with you guys. It was a year long of incredibly fun time working with the talented team at the Sony Santa Monica office. And the concept team of myself, Andy Park, Cecil Kim, Jung Park, Scott Seeto, and Izzy Medrano had blast working together creating so much fun characters and environments. Not to say it wasn't challenging at all but creating unknown world with infinite possibility was so new to me after working on war related games for so long upto that time. Hope you guys enjoy them here.

Finally, I've found some time to organize and put up my works from recently released UNCHARTED II.
I joined the team from the mid-point of production and had lots of fun working with so many talented artists here at Naughty Dog. And it's that much more pleasing to see the game do so well and liked by those gamers and fans out there. Hope you enjoy!!

Welcome to my first ever website!!!  Hooray!!! :)
After being in the industry for last 6 years without a website and hearing from tons of people about the importance of having one, I thought it's about time to have my own...And it's really exciting to see it happening finally.
Thank you for your time to stop by and see my work. I'm still embarrassed but oh well...
Hope you guys enjoy. ^^ 

 

Hello,

My name is Andrew Kim.
Currently located in Los Angeles, CA, I've been a concept/vis dev artist since 2002. I graduated from Art Center College of Design majoring in Illustration and ever since then it's been a fun ride in this wild entertainment industry.

I was born and raised in S.Korea for first 12 years of my life. Having parents with art background, drawing has been a huge part of my life. My parents certainly warned me when I told them this is the career that I want to pursue but I know that I couldn't have come this far without their huge support in every possible ways. Now that I have a family of my own with 3 kids, I'm even more focused to become a better artist than ever. :)

So... what I like to do... well, I can certainly say that I like getting my hands on many different things in this business. Digging in one specific area is certainly nice but the nature of concepting is just so broad with so many choices. I've always wanted to be an artist with many different abilities and you'll certainly see the different type of works I did previously in my galleries folder.

I'm always looking for new projects!
There are just so many exciting projects out there. Some are already announced and some are very well kept hidden. ;)  So if interested, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for visiting my website.
