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!



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

Black & White
Tight final sketch
4 idea sketches


It was sleepless week since last Wednesday night, and today feels like a weekend to me.
I got an unbelievable e-mail from NY Times, and they needed my illustrations for their new blog named Townies which just started a month ago.

The story is about being a Korean/Chinese woman in New York City, and the amazing writer is Mary H.K. Choi who is also Korean!
So I yelled, THIS IS PERFECT FOR ME!!!!! and yes, it totally worked well with my 5 years of life experiences in NY!

I really enjoyed the story I illustrated last week, and you can see the 4 different idea sketches and finals here.
Every Wednesday after 6pm in November, it will be updated, so please stay tuned for the interesting Korean woman living in NY stories with my illustrations!!!

I don't know how can I show my thankful mind to NY Times, but all I can do is creating my best illustrations for them even though I can't sleep in November!!

** Many thanks to the hottest art director Alexandra Zsigmond**
