Julie & Julia AND Jungyeon.

Yes. Today is Sunday, so instead of showing my work process, I'm gonna post something else up.
I watched the movie Julie & Julia two days ago, and it has been stuck some parts of my head since then.
I can't believe Julie Powell made a miracle in her tiny apartment's kitchen in Queens.
I used to cook very often until I lived in Brooklyn in 2007, but since I moved twice afterward my hobby had changed. ( to silkscreen,, I guess??)
And another big change of my life is I started becoming Vegan/Vegetarian since the summer of 2009.
At that time, I just wanted to my body and soul clean, and I didn't care anything about animals.
However, after I read a book named Skinny Bitch about a month ago, I decided to be strict Vegan for animals and the world of hunger.
Now, I'm reading two books named Slaughter House, and Vegan- the new ethic of eating.
The books changed entire of my eating habit, and I really enjoy it.

So, here is my Vegan pasta recipe.
1. Left; I put a sliced Tofurky's fake sausage and carrot, onion, eggplant, garlic, and edamame with olive oil.
Right; tomato spinach fusilli in boiling water with a pinch of sea salt in 10 minutes.
2. put the cooked pasta in the fan, and fry them together.
3. add some eggplant marinara sauce.
4. Then, eat!

Warning: honestly, fake meats are not the same taste as REAL meat, and not as delicious as them. but, after you got used to their taste, you will realize that people can live without eating animals' carcass.

I've never forced anybody to be Vegan because it's a personal choice, but it changed my life already.
Unfortunately, Julie & Julia's recipe is not for Vegan, but I really like the movie.
From Julia Child and Julie Powell's successful stories, I might try to make some food for a while in my tiny tiny kitchen... I guess.
Hope you like my clumsy recipe! :D


Apple juice?

Here is an editorial image that I did last semester in Marshall's class.
We illustrated about making better America's education from an article of New York Times newspaper.
I had pretty hard time because I didn't know that apples symbolized education in America.

I've been sick for about a week.
One of my rules is NEVER absent my classes, but I did last night.
I felt dizzy and fever at the class, maybe it because of the heavy snow?...
or homesick...I guess....


Sketches in a heavy snowy day

My favorite Timothy DeLaghetto is included!! :D
Here are some sketches of my new book project Miss Eggplant's American Boys.
Fortunately, my teachers really liked my ideas! hehehe
I had hard time to get more blue pencils from art supply stores which were around SVA.-useless!
But I went to china town pearl with two hungry beasts yesterday.
Pearl only had four left...!!!

I need to get 100 of prismacolor col-erase BLUE pencils!!! greedy...yes.

I'm so excited to make this book.
My face kept smiling while I was drawing, and the song was stuck in my head. ( even Will's head too)

I drew all kinds of American boys in this book.

Sorry, this book cannot include,

1. Gay guys.( sorry, will, gant and ryan)
2. Married guys. (sorry, chi and chris)
3. In a relationship or broke up in past six months. (sorry...)
4. Grandpas or babies.( so sorry...)

However, I'm thinking of including Marshall, Carl and David are for extras.- special exceptions!
