오드리 & 앨든 | Katie and Dave's beautiful kids, Audrey & Alden


Katie is my cheerful and thoughtful friend and a versatile illustrator. Time flies. She already has two adorable children. It is so fun to see her lovely family on FB. I totally adore Audrey and Alden and love their costumes for Princeton Halloween Parade this year! They are so cute!

알버트 로렌즈 | Albert Lorenz


Al was my architectural illustration teacher at FIT. I was fascinated by the extraordinary details of his artwork. He shared his astonishing technique using technical pens, and Rapidograph pens are still my favourite tools. Every time I use them I think of him. All my classmates loved him because it would be difficult to find such a delightful person like him. Illustrators who used to be architects like Prof. Lorenz and Saul Steinberg know how to draw buildings in perspective. With his knowledge of architecture, he has created gemlike illustration for various fields including advertising, magazines, children's books and architectural firms.

마테오 | Mateo Taiyo Kanaiwa

Genevieve and Takuma's adorable son,
Genevieve and I became friends through a team project from Prof. Soyka's class at FIT. I feel so blessed to have had the chance to meet her. She, having great inner beauty, is a very talented illustrator, designer, and educator from whom I've been inspired. I love her delicate illustration and sophisticated design styles. She also helped me a lot not to feel lonely as a stranger in NYC. I haven't met her son, Mateo yet because I came back to Korea about three years ago. It's incredible I can see both her and her husband, Takuma from a sweet little baby boy. Thank you so much for being such a good friend, G! I miss you, and can't wait to meet your little angel.
