Story
Tagline
Brooklyn Based Illustrator
Introduction
I am a Korean illustrator who grew up in Oklahoma, found my way to New York City, married a Hong Kong girl who is an acclaimed choreographer/dancer and ended up in Brooklyn. It is a very typical story.

Being an illustrator means people agree to pay you for images they haven't even seen yet. Since I try to break down the project to its basic elements and create ideas from those elements, it usually works out well for everyone.

Bragging rights
As a 10 year old running back for my grade school football team I once ran 50 yards while my pants were falling down. This is still the most impressive thing I have done to this day.
