I'm an illustrator, adopted Korean-American, currently living in Brooklyn. My weapons of choice are ink, paint, and digital, and I'm known for the drama in my images (but only in my images, not so much my life) and my ability to capture likenesses.

If I weren't an illustrator, I'd be a sad accordion player.
I wouldn't be sad, the accordion would be.


In March of 2015, I began to hide in small bars and music venues in Brooklyn (nice dark ones with space for my brushes and paper) and draw the musicians. Just for myself. Decent ones go on my Instagram. People seem to like them.

Are you in one of my drawings?
If so, and you'd like to use my drawing for self-promotion on social media, feel free! Credit to me as the artist in some form is preferrable, of course. If you'd like, email me and I can also send you a high-res scan of the drawing.

Want a drawing?
Let's see if I still have it. (I probably do.) Yes, sometimes I sell them. Email me!
