Character and storyboard
Brief Summary
I'm a South Korean who lives in South Africa for almost 9 years.
People describe me as an animation character because I love to chat with my expressive body gestures. Normally my illustration & design style is fun and interesting but also sometimes 'deep' in order to express my opinion and perception.
Music beats, book store, vintage, Steampunk, social issues and sometimes strawberry juice inspire me.
