"Movado hosted a cultural arts event at the Visual Arts Gallery at the School of Visual Arts in NYC on Monday, December 6, 2010.
Movado honored five outstanding young artists with the Movado Future Legend Award following the ‘Night of Discovery’ celebration, held in collaboration with Derek Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation to honor ‘Jeter's Leaders’ – Turn 2’s premier youth leadership development program." (by Movado)

It was a fancy night!
Especially, I was honored to meet Eugene Tong who is a senior style editor, Details Magazine. (Even more than Derek Jeter and Wynton Marsalis, haha)
He had tons of sense of humor and I became a huge fan of him! (nice)
Thanks again Movado.
I'll do my best as a Future Legend! :D

Amazing panels- James McShane,Renee French and Leanne Shapton. Special Thanks to Bill Kartalopoulos!
haha, we all did good job even though we were all nervous at first. :) ( and people loved my rabbit sweater, so let's save rabbits' lives!)

Sorry for being lazy to my blog about a month. haha...
I was super busy until the beginning of December, and HOLY COW all good things happened to my nerdy life.

The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival became one of my best memories in 2010.
And Thanks again for making me one of the penals with James McShane,Renee French and Leanne Shapton!
As a fan of their work, it was my BIG honored to be with them in a same group.
And thanks for coming to see me and buy my prints! ( I made a bundle again! )

The special thing was I met Vanessa Davis and became friends right after!
I've been her huge fan since 2006, but she was even more amazing in person!!!
Wow! BCGF is always good!!!!!

Special Thanks to Gabe (Desert Island) and Bill! xo

Thanks for all the support and love for my tough, hard, fun, and enjoyable November, and can't forget the experiences that I had for Townies.

Illustrating the best Korean female writer's columns made me rethink about being Korean woman in New York, and found that I love my country and Kreens! :D

Special Thanks to the best art director Alexandra Zsigmond and the hottest writer Mary H.K. Choi!

Now, it's time to go back to my thesis project - Hot Vegan Book!!! :)

NY Times Op-ed Townies- the third blogging of November


NY Times gave me to have a more realistic experience in terms of how newspapers work yesterday.
For this piece, I only got about 6 hours, and my hand became like an automatic drawer.
I really enjoyed the challenged experience and also made me ensure why I want to be an illustrator in America.
I'm not 100% satisfied with the final piece, but glad I did my best for it.


Lil interwiews

NY Arts

I did two lil interviews recently.
Many thanks to Samantha Roldan from NY art magazine, and Jaap Proost for Beats Nothing.com from Amsterdam.

As you know or not, my lucky number is 11.
This year's on my birthday, I met some awesome people at the AI party and the after party.
But I didn't tell anybody the day( Nov 11th) was my birthday! ( because I don't like getting older? :P)
Happy belated birthday myself!! haha

Why #11 is my lucky number?

My Birthday is 11/11
My looooong-time school finished year is 2011
So, I am the class of 2011
My studio #11
I paid more often at the register #11 at the Trader Joes
Umm... what else?...



NY Times Op-ed Townies- the second blogging of November

This week's wasn't really easy as you see all the sketches.
But I really enjoyed the story about going Korean, and glad the final piece came out nice!
