Kotra GMV 2018 Art Collaboration Exhibition & NYT Business

I had a pleasure to exhibit my Alcalde magazine and some NYT Business section works for the Kotra’s GMV 2018 art collaboration exhibition from Oct 10 ~ 12th 2018 at YangJae AT center in Seoul.

GMV is a Global Mobile Vision Conference and one of the largest international fairs in ICT industry in Asia. They invited domestic and global software/solution players and hold a forum that will present the hottest and most up to date global IT trends.

So, Kotra thought that my Alcalde magazine cover and the opener is PERFECT to exhibit for the exhibition! It was my great honor to be invited with other amazing artists and companies.

Hope you enjoy the exhibition photos!


Last year, I was asked for doing a cover art for the NYT Travel section, but it was cancelled at the last minute because of the hurricane in the US… I was so sad, but have been waited for another assignment.

This year, AD Minh Uong asked me to draw one illustration for the workologist section, so here you can see the art! Link

Hope you enjoy! 🙂

Summer vacation is almost over!!!

Since I started teaching undergrad students in Seoul, ( we have summer and winter vacations evenly two months each every year) I was looking forward to summer and winter vacations so badly. 

Of course, I really enjoy teaching during semesters, but there’s not much time for myself, so the vacation time became more valuable. 

Thanks to Kookmin Univ for offering faculty and staff only vacation house, so I went to Manlipo there I had so much fun at a beautiful beach at the beginning of July. HOWEVER, right after I came back to Seoul, the weather became crazy hot and Seoul suffered 24 tropical nights in a row and still we can’t live without air conditioners!!! (The weather forced me to go to an indoor swimming pool almost everyday!! now I became a REAL seal. lol) 

Anyways, so I finally found a brand new co-working space in Seoul which is like a trend these days in this city. It is pretty much awesome so far, and made me everyday productive.

I’m teaching printmaking including silkscreen and risograph next semester, so I was so excited, and started linocut in my studio for warming up! ( I’m planning to make 100 works of linocut!) 

I also did the client works with digital media. So here’s my latest works below.
