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

Hello, I’m illustrator Hyowon, Park. I’m working under the pen name of ‘our own night’. You can see the meaning of the pen name in my TMI cartoon, 004. I majored in industrial design at K-SAD Art College and now I live in Seoul, from South Korea.

2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I tend to think a lot about what I’m going to show and how I’m going to show so that the viewers can feel all the emotions visually. I spend most of my time at this stage. I usually draw characters and like to create a dynamic structure! So I think the most important thing in my artwork is the overall layout. I’m always trying to apply a new, more flexible layout.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I always carry around my laptop and portable tablet (I really want to buy an iPad pro…). I usually carry a backpack because I work a lot while I’m on the go. I think it’s great to be able to draw, edit, anywhere.

4. What is your artistic process like?

I’m usually inspired by everyday normal life. First, I save the words that I think of on my iPhone memo. Then I open my notebook and do a rough sketch. Next, do the 2nd and 3rd sketch on the web and make several corrections. Almost every time my works of art are completed differently than I thought. I think it takes a lot of thought, correction, and repetition to create good work.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

I love drawing while listening to music and watching movies at dawn. My favorite artists are Daniel Caesar and Yellow days. And I was really inspired by many artists who were based on graffiti artists such as Kenny Scharf and Shepard Fairey.

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

Art is what gives me so much in my life. I think it’s the best way to express myself. I also draw artwork to relieve stress.

7. Where did you study?

Since I was very young, I went to a small art academy in my neighborhood and learned drawing as a hobby. At the age of 16, I decided to pursue a career in design, and later, I majored in product design at K-SAD Arts College in Korea. But after graduating from college, I wanted to have more diverse experiences. So I spent more time making graphic artwork than I did with my resume and editing my portfolio. I’ve put all of my artwork on the web portfolio, and there’s a lot of people who love my work. I think opening a web portfolio is the best thing I’ve ever done! That’s when I became a freelancer, and I’m working hard on drawing.

8. Where do you see yourself in five years?

Oh! I recently made a YouTube account. My nickname is ‘301 Graphic LABs’ and it’s the drawing time-lapse channel! I will upload the video continuously for 5 years and thinking about the contents. And I think I’m going to try various things for the content. I think I will have a lot of subscribers at that time. About a million people…?

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

I know how much art, visual, affects us. It’s the easiest medium, the fastest way to get my message across to many people. I’m very grateful that I’m part of this field. Even if I don’t achieve much, I just want to be happy.

11. Now, tell us a little more about you as a person: what is your favourite food?

This is a cruel question… But if I choose one, Tteokbokki! Tteokbokki is the most famous snack in Korea. It’s really good. I’ve eaten three times this week.

12. Favourite book?

I recently read Jessie Burton’s ‘Muse’. It’s a book that depicts the life of a female artist in the 1960s. It was really good. As the same woman, I felt anger and exhilaration. On the other hand, I felt grateful for my environment now.
