Be a Part of Art: Hongdae's Trick Eye Museum

Seoul is a city for art lovers. From sculpture gardens to galleries, the city is full of cultural spaces dedicated to all things artsy. Hongdae is a neighborhood particularly known for its art scene, with many of its residents being design students at Hongik University. All the others no doubt appreciate the vibrant murals, street performers, and interesting exhibits that are ever-present within the demarcation of the area.

New Postcard Series


After that trip to the Korea Design Museum, I was inspired to make some new works. I took away the red outline from some of the postcards I saw and went with it. The first one there just going from my imagination then having a swell time creating the vibrant red border.

South American Flair in Gamcheon


Our Travel Books

A trip to the Gamcheon Culture Village was one of the stranger excursions we’ve undertaken during our time in South Korea. This neighborhood in the west of Busan has dedicated itself to art, with murals, sculptures and installations that occupy entire houses. Visitors are taken on a tour which snakes through narrow alleys and ends at an observation deck with an amazing view over the city.


Gettin' Arty at the Gamcheon Culture Village

View of Gamcheon Culture Village, Busan, Korea

I was sitting in Busan one day naively thinking I'd seen it all, when this wonderful city surprised me with something new yet again. At the suggestion of a friend, my boyfriend and I made our way to the Gamcheon Culture Village, a picturesque art-adorned village perched high atop a hill overlooking the city and the sea.


Yeoju Ceramic Festival ~ Video

a. favorite art material-  Pentel brush pen

b. places of inspiration {shops, nature, places, etc}- Places of inspiration tend to be design or illustration galleries for me. That’s where I see the kind of work that I aspire to produce the most.


The Busan Museum of Art


You can buy or license our photos!

We visited the Busan Museum of Art the day after our bizarre excursion to the Snow Castle indoor ski hall. And here, again, was a cavernous building of steel, completely devoid of people. But whereas the Snow Castle has shuttered its doors forever, the art museum was open for business. Just… there was no business.


The Lovers: Life drawing session at Jankura


The recent life drawing session at Jankura art space involved a male and female model with the theme as "Lovers." It was a fun mix up of the usual life drawing session, and my first time getting to draw a male model at Jankura. I had a good time and tried my best, of course.
