If you are wondering what I’ve been up to these days,

  1. Teaching four classes including undergrad and grad students this semester.

  2. They’ve learning how to silkscreen, risograph, linocut, bookbinding, illustrations and making artist books from me.

  3. So I made samples and demonstration videos for the classes.

  4. The newest project I’ve been doing was about ‘Better Together’ and have not been decided the project name yet.

  5. Sorry for the long time no updates!

  6. Enjoy!

Prinker – Temporary Tattoo Solution

If you are wondering what PRINKER is, please watch these videos. (You’ve probably never seen this device before ) It was one of the greatest Korean inventions and only for B2B for now)

I signed a contract with Prinker in Nov 2018 to create 30 tattoo designs, and I’ve been working on the designs since then.

I was interested in developing tattoo images because of my strong line works, but Prinker’s designs needed more than just good drawings.

The designs required to be in a limited size which was a short height, and a long width, (8100pix x 1080pix). Moreover, there’s no pure white and black ink in the device, and colors made out of C,M,Y cosmetic inks.

And the most important/hardest thing was that tattoo designs have to stick out of skin!

So some of them could be switched to new designs, but here are my tattoo designs for Prinker ⬇︎⬇︎⬇︎

 When Prinker was delivered to me it looked like this.

 Lovely box!
Lovely box!

I experimented until I got the right designs, so I’ve tried million times on my skin, my family’s and my students’.

Check out below and happy 2019!! Hopefully Prinker on your skin soon! 🙂

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! 🙂
