Dangerlam (aka Kim) was formally trained to wield scalpels and sutures as a veterinarian, rather than pencils and pigments as an illustrator. Despite or because of this, she derives immense and novel pleasure in composing light-hearted, playful and somewhat naive works that serve to evoke whimsy into the everyday—a counterbalance to the oft-seriousness of life.
Outside of illustrating and occasional animal doctoring, Kim collaborates with Dr Jason Fox within The Cleverness — working with adventurous and creatively-inclined leaders to shape culture and build for the future of work. Kim is the editor of the independent magazine, The Cleverness Biannual.
She is based in Fitzroy, Melbourne, and can also be found at @dangerlam on instagram.
