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

I live in Seoul, Korea.

I think drawing a picture is like playing chess. The number of possible cases and the unpredictable happen within one square. It is infinite and I think that infinite possibilities are beautiful.

Digital, using iPad. Drawing anywhere in a smaller space, more convenient than Wacom.

Mainly, materials are obtained from old paintings (1700 years). When I find a person or object that want to draw, I create a story in it. And color it.
