I am cartoonist Robin Ha, the author and the illustrator for Almost American Girl, a Graphic Novel Memoir, and Cook Korean!: A Comic Book With Recipes, a New York Times bestseller cookbook graphic novel. I was born in South Korea and moved to the United States when I was fourteen. After graduating from RISD, I've been working as a freelance cartoonist and an illustrator in NY and Washington DC.


My mission as an artist is to share my cultural and personal experiences through comics. Aside from drawing comics, I have been giving numerous talks and cooking demos to share my knowledge and love for Korean culture around the United States.



As much as I love to draw, I love to eat. My plan is to travel to new places around the world and taste their food and draw comics about them. There is really no food that I wouldn't try at least once in my life. I don't have a sweet tooth though. I always go for bacon over baked goods.​
