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.

The New Creation

It’s already December 2017! I can’t believe time flies sooooooooooo fast! 

I was searching for a good printmaking lab in Seoul for a while, and finally found a small Riso lab in Chungmooro which is the biggest publication area in Seoul. 

For my first Riso book, honestly I was not 100% satisfied, actually somewhat mad…. but I recalled the moment I made the first silkscreen book about 10 years ago. I was so clumsy and full of mistakes and so sad when I saw the results of the silkscreen prints. Even though I felt that I wasted of all the money and time for silkscreen, I didn’t give up. Then few months later, I made a satisfied silkscreen book finally! ( That was ‘Today is Sushi Day’) 

I believe this case is the same. so even though I’m not 100% happy with the results, I’ll never stop and keep doing the Riso! 

This semester has only one week left. I enjoyed so much of teaching for my students and was so glad seeing their better work week by week. 

Hopefully New York doesn’t forget about me as much as I missed the city.

But now I compared the life I had in New York and Seoul, I’d like to say living in Seoul is much better because I’m not a stranger/foreigner/alien in this city that is very important matter for one’s life quality. 

I hope this book became a good start of my NEW printmaking life in Seoul. I used the color of Dark Purple which is the Pantone color of the year for 2018 and also Yellow, which is the Chinese year of the yellow dog for 2018. This is a funny story that the future Adam and Eve met Trump and Kim Jong-Un, then made “the New Creation”. I wanted to criticize the present and future’s important and biggest matters with my humors of drawings based on the stories of the bible. 

Hope you like it! 🙂
