1. What’s your story? Where are you from?

Hi, I’m Ho-mi, a graphic designer in Korea. I’m drawing as a hobby. And maybe it could be my main job someday.

2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I draw the scene that comes to my mind and draw what I want. It is my direction to use unique objects and attractive colors, which is not quite common.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I prefer doing digital work using software like Photoshop or devices like an iPad. That’s because I can keep correcting until I get my satisfied results during work.

4. What is your artistic process like?

Usually, I simply sketch and draw an image that comes to mind in sudden. I’ve made a color chip of a favorite combination and also use the color I wanted to use before. These days, I do a lot of research to make different styles.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

I like to collect photos of my favorite scenes, objects, people, and color combinations. And also, I am inspired by cats, movies, music and images that come to mind. I can see my taste and what I want through those collections.

6. What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?

Art makes me see world deeper and deeper. It makes me remember and record the moments that I don’t want to forget.

10. What do you hope to achieve with your art?

I wish people notice that it’s my work just by looking at it without any explanation. And I want to express much things so my work can be used in many fields.

15. If you weren’t an artist, what would you be?

I’ve been dreaming of art since I was young, but if it wasn’t art, I think I would have been a hair designer. Because I always like to do something with my hands. I think it will be fun.
