About SproutHead

Sales 3,735
On Etsy since 2007

All the Little Details.

Sprout Head is the moniker for Richmond, VA-based artist Aijung Kim.

I am an artist, printmaker, zine-maker, illustrator, writer, and aspiring children's book creator. I make art inspired by nature, whimsy, simple joys, and a bit of magic.

I sell my work at gallery and craft shows, in shops around the country, and online through my Etsy shop, which I opened back in the summer of 2007. I started with hand-screenprinted t-shirts, tiny letterpressed prints, and holiday ornaments. My shop has since evolved to offer a variety of illustrated paper creations. I create handmade linocuts and prints, illustrated poetry and prose zines, blank cards reproduced from my original artwork, and a deck of symbolic oracle cards called "The Golden Moth Illumination Deck."

I love to work with my hands, channeling ideas and emotion into my work. I am an obsessive person by nature, so the repetitive motion of printmaking - particularly carving linocuts - eases my nerves and allows me to focus on patterns and images. I also love making zines - it excites me to merge visual art and the written word. With zines, I can express myself through poetry and prose by chronicling life in all its mundane yet important details. Each of the images on my notecards has been carefully chosen from my original artwork in drawing, painting, printmaking, and fiber art to reflect a whimsical mood and the magic of everyday life.
