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

Hello. Iโ€™m LEE ZOOM. I believe everything happens for a reason. So, I try to figure the reason and story out.ย Now,ย I often draw inย an illustrated diary observing my daily life myself in South Korea.

2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I’d like to draw a picture that people empathize with. I’m always drawing pictures, imagining how they would look when they look at my picture.

I prefer the manual drawing method personally.ย But handwork and iPad have been properly selected since I bought an iPad.

4. What is your artistic process like?

I always try to observe as many things as possible around me. And I take photos, notes, doodle and then imagine.ย Sometimes, whenย I feel that its hard to imagine, I just draw an incident of my day on my picture diary.ย Drawing in a picture diary helps me move on to the next step.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

EVERYTHING AROUND ME.ย The weather of the day, atmosphere, works that I did today and every little action of people around me can be a source of my drawing. For instance, my finger characters were also made while observing my fingers suddenly.

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

I found another me out myself through drawing.ย Iโ€™ve started to draw a picture diary and posted it on SNS several years ago. The more people had been interested in my picture diary, the more I wanted to show them a more cheerful one, which made my personality changed in a good way.ย Now I am trying to look at all the bright and positive sides of the world to become an author who draws a picture full of warmth.

I would want to draw a picture at my studio or watch people on the quiet street. I hope to publish a picture book in 5 years. I donโ€™t have any idea if I would want to work in an agency yet.
