2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

Details make up beauty. Rhythm and colors are the most important. I think most art should include a music-like aspect.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

Last time, I draw with pen and paper, scan it and colour it with photoshop. But now I use photoshop only. It’s fast, accurate and more comfortable. Wacom Cintique changed many things in my work process.

4. What is your artistic process like?

1. I memo quick ideas with short sentences. 2. I make rough thumbnails. Sometimes I do it with digital and sometimes pen on paper. I have so many thumbnails that needs to be finished. 3. I make sketch – clear line – shading – color with photoshop.

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

My art didn’t change my view. My view changed my art. It’s basically illustration, but also it can be a story or poetry. I don’t think they are totally different. My art is just a result of my view.

7. Where did you study?

I majored in comics at Korea animation high school and majored in communication design at Dankook University. I think my experiences in high school are more important in my life.

I don’t know yet. But I hope I still enjoy the journey of art itself by that time.

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

Hmm, it’s difficult to answer. I just want to make perfect illustration as possible. After finish that 1 illustration, I want to make a better one.

13. Favourite genre of music?

When I was young, I was a rock kid and I had my own band. I composed music and played bass. Sure, that was not professional quality but I deeply enjoyed it. Now, I listen to all kinds of music. City pop, Claude Debussy, Hip hop. I’m listening to MGMT while typing this interview.

I take a walk to the riverside everyday. Near home is a beautiful riverside. I organize my thoughts and ideas during this time.

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

I don’t know. I was a ‘good student’ at a young age, so my parents wanted to make me a lawyer or doctor or something white collar. But I didn’t want those kinds of jobs. Maybe I’d be living as a common employee if I didn’t choose an artist’s life. Even if I were an employee now, I’ll quit it and start an artistic career. Maybe.
