LA Times & More!

March 2nd is the first day of the spring semester start date in Korea. (Korea has Spring and Fall semesters only, spring semester called 1st semester, and fall called 2nd. We have summer and winter breaks for 2 months each.)

Before I started the semester, I got a job from LA Times about ” Why does dating at 67 feel like high school all over again?” by Martha Carr. The story was hilarious, and I could capture the feelings clearly. Martha, the author, left me a thank note after it was published. – so lovely of her! 🙂

This semester is pretty exciting because I’m taking a Printmaking class and Art & law class from Seoul National Univ., where I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree. I’ve wanted to learn more about Art’s law, especially in the past years, while working with hundreds of clients. – so hopefully, it helps!

Oh, you might wonder about what’s my new zine’s doing. The zines are sold at some independent bookstores in Korea. Also, for the States, it was supposed to be sold at Desert Island Brooklyn. However, the package was not delivered properly, so I’m still waiting to solve the problems… – (Please ask Gabe!) – Updated on 3/10/2021 Problem solved! Go and get my new zines at Desert Island Brooklyn! 🙂

Anyways, so here’s the book store list where you can find my “The Fairy and the Fried Shrimp” (I didn’t know Korea has sooooooooo many independent book stores before I made the zines.)

The first blogging of 2021: Inc. Magazine – Famously Fired & more!

Here’s my latest and first illustrations of 2021 about ‘Famously Fired’, including the CEO of KFC, Hershey’s, Mark Cuban, and Sallie Krawcheck. Mark Cuban’s success story was pretty impressive!

Thanks, AD Andrew Horton, and click HERE to see the articles.

I recently opened an online print shop HERE. The first order was made from Germany🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪! Thanks a lot! 🙂

One Good News – ‘The fairy and the fried shrimp,’ is now being printed at the one Riso printer in Korea! It’ll be 100 editions, so please stay tuned!

One of my new year’s resolutions for 2021 is more blogging, so talk soon! 🙂

** This Week’s Highlights **

  1. Found Roz Chast’s comic book at Seoul National Univ.’s library! Fun to read in Korean!
  2. This Italian candy bag got so popular in Korea! They only sold these at Olive Young, Korea’s renowned health & beauty store, and the Lemon flavor was all sold out! I got the less popular orange taste for the alternative, but enough sour~
  3. It snowed a lot last week. Coco’s footprints in the snow are sooooo cute.
