A fun exhibition.

I am very happy to be included in this fun exhibition called IN THE STUDIO at St. John's University. In this exhibition, eight children's book artists will showcase each of their work process and some of the final art work with published books. I collected some of my sketches, dummy book, block print proof, and final art from my book Only a Witch Can Fly written by Alison McGhee. Please visit the show if you are around.

Mom&I magazine interview

I had this lovely interview with Mom&I magazine (January issue) awhile ago. Mom&I is a Korean magazine which is published in U.S. for Korean American. I met Sally, the editor of the magazine, and we talked over a pot of coffee at a cafe. She was a wonderful person to talk to and I enjoyed lots of coffee. Many thanks to Sally!

지난 겨울 인터뷰했던 Mom&I 1월호가 나왔습니다. Mom&I 는 미국에 사시는 교포분들을 위한 잡지입니다. 편안하게 인터뷰 진행해주시고 기사도 너무나 잘 써주신 샐리씨 감사드립니다~!

New Year, New Book!

I received the best Christmas gift from Chronicle Books last year. Tua and the Elephant is finally ready to be out this spring! This is my very first chapter book that I illustrated. The cover art is printed on a matt type paper which is my favorite! And the interior illustration colors turned out very nicely.
Big thanks to Julie and Eloise !!!

지난 여름,겨울 그림작업했던 책이 드디어 2012년 4월 출판됩니다. 역시 Chronicle 출판사의 디자인 감각은 참...작가에게 그림작업후 보람을 느끼게 합니다. 작업 열심히 해서 보냈는데 디자인이 엉망이면 다리에 힘이 쫙 풀리거든요. 이번 책은 처음으로 두가지 색 분판인쇄 작업을 했는데 전부터 너무나 해보고 싶었던 꿈의 프로젝트였습니다. 또 하고 싶어요~ 또 시켜주세요~
에디터 쥴리와 디자이너 엘로이즈에게 많은 감사를 드립니다!
