Work With Me

Whether you’re a fellow blogger, a small company or a Hanbok designer, I’d love to hear from you about the projects you are working on. I am currently located in Seoul, South Korea.

Hey Internet. With all of this spare house quarantine time, I've finally figured out what I want my Instagram to be… or the direction I want it to take. What a snooze fest of a post this is going to be. โ€ข I started this account when I was finishing uni 2 years ago as a way to procrastinate/share my drawings. Then I stopped drawing and had nothing to post so I mishmashed random Korea pics in with drawings I didn't really like! โ€ข Does anyone else feel this strange urge to post things for no reason other than to see your profile fill up with more colour/likes/followers? It's kind of like instant gratification hoarding and I need to stop with that. It's the digital version of having a huge bookshelf with only a few books taking up shelf space. You just feel like you need to aquire any old books to fill the gap without really caring about the book itself? Bad analogy? I digress. โ€ข Then I moved to Korea and started working a lot and felt zero creative juices flowing in my brain. I probably posted 10 pictures the whole time I was working last year. This led my insta train further off the rails. โ€ข I've now compartmentalised my drawing account, korea/blog/travel account and my personal account. Maybe one of the few positive outcomes of a worldwide health epidemic is all this extra thinking time? โ€ข This is my account that is all about Korean life, and I started @koreanpicnic for all of my drawings and designs to be shown! If you'd like to follow my art page, that'd be okay with me. โ€ข Bonus: I also started a YouTube channel at the start of the year because I've been wanting to do it for 5 years and, literally, why the hell not? So, if you're interested about my life here in Korea, go to my blog for different links to my videos. Life in a foreign country is hard, so I wanted to share things, make friends, find a new hobby and have a way to unleash my neverending internal monologue. โ€ข Okay cool, that's all I had to say. Here are some pics from Gamcheon Culture Village in Busan, 2017. They're still my fave pics I've ever taken with a camera and they somehow make you feel happy without any context, editing or reason.
