Recently I was asked to create a border illustration for Nina Lambert’s serial set ‘The Real Thing’ for Woman’s Weekly magazine, UK (issues 30 July, 6, 13, 20, 27 August 2013). The gist of the story is that the art buyer’s boyfriend is a forger artist who paints in a modern technique.
— quote —
“…recurring motifs of locks and keys buried deep within the swirling reds and greens and blacks, the hidden shapes indiscernible to an untutored eye.”

The illustration needed just to give a gist of the code.

Here is the outcome :D

Hope you enjoy it!

Illustration for IF: Twirl




Hello, People! I just finished the illustration for IF. This week's topic is 'twirl'.
I really enjoyed the whole process, cause, the word 'Twirl'... I've never heard about this before, ( English is not my first language and learning new word is always exciting!) I went to the dictionary soon and said hello to my new friend! Hi, twirl!)

Anywayyyy, Here's my idea map.

Twirl- movement- round- time- we all lives in the tiny hole or water..whatever and someone twirls our place in his hand- a bit messy-... ... but it is a beautiful mess.

New clothes for my website

Hello, people! It was a busy weekend. It's the time to give new clothes for my website! Yeah! Loads of creatures yelled at me to pick them. it was just like competitions. haha :D Recently, I am trying to approach to create characters in a different way that I've done- does not quite far from my sketch, using of lines and colours are more simple than before and more than this, I am trying to take great care into each of those creatures.

Those three images are some sketches of new creatures with Faber-castell pitt artist pen M and Fudegokochi pen made in Japan. It was my first time to use Fudegokochi pen and it was just amazing, very smart pen. Love it!

People! Come and enjoy the time with new creatures and new stuff on my website.
Hope you like it!!

Self-initiated illustration -SADNESS

Dear Sadness

god, damn! It's you again. I will lock the door of yours
then you'll NEVER, EVER come out from there and never visit me again. But I don't know where you live..
I can't stand this sadness anymore. Fuck off, Sadness!

I've done this(the image on the right) for my personal project. I haven't decided the name of this project.. who cares!! haha! but probably it's going to be something about monsters. Because I love to make characters!

Be prepare to say goodbye

I've done this for IF (Illustration friday), This week's topic was " Prepare."
What a great word for starting something new.
But I thought about this word in a bit sad way.. like " Be prepare to say goodbye"

guess what's going on here

People aren't the only things here, there are little creatures. Here we are.

Umm... Man, I love it.

It's time to move forward

It's time to move forward

Everything had been blur since 2 months ago. After I finished my Master's in September, I dug a deep hole and lived in it for a while and thought about my life that I've been walking. I was shaking with loneliness and regrets..
Now I think, I will not be afraid of talking about myself, I will NEVER be afraid of being naked in front of people. Because this is the way I am. This is it. Trust my self and to be honest to my self even though people say that's so stupid.

The top sketch was done last night, the title is, " It's time to move forward."
Those little creatures say, " Fuck, don't cry", " I will not cry", " there's no time to cry" and " Keep in there, Jihyun"

Whenever there's sad moments, this song always picked me up, let me get back on my feet. Glen Hansard's Falling Slowly.

"You have suffered enough and warred with yourself, It's time that you won, Take this sinking boat and point it home, We've still got time, Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice, You've made it now."

Que sera sera

Que sera sera

Everything was so messy. I even didn't know what I was drawing and writing.
At that time, it just appeared in front of me and said slowly..
"Que sera sera... what ever will be..."

It saved me from the super crazy damn messy hole.
