My name is Kali Ciesemier ( Kali sounds like "Cali" and Ciesemier rhymes with "Cease-fire") I'm a freelance illustrator newly based in New York with a love of color and the fantastic.
I taught illustration from 2009-2013 at my alma mater, the Maryland Institute College ofArt, and have worked on a wide variety of projects!

My clients include

Amtrak, the Boston Globe, Cartoon Network, Google, Harper Collins, LA Times, the New York Times, the New Yorker, Scholastic, and United Way. I have also previously worked as a concept artist for Big Huge Games.

My work has been recognized by

the Society of Illustrators, Spectrum, and American Illustration.

I have spoken at

the Society of Illustrators on the "First Four Years" panel, Light Grey Art Lab at the "Resolve to MAKE: 2013" workshop, Winthrop University as the GD/IL commencement speaker, and Small Press Expo 2013 on the "Illustration as Profession and Practice" panel.
