Annyeong Seoul

  • A series of 4 illustrations inspired by my trip to South Korea
  • "Dancing with the Wind" depicts the dramatic movement of Korean traditional dances, accentuated by the elegant hanbok. 
  • In contrast to Korean traditional culture, "Chilling in the City" references the hip urban landscape and youth fashion of Seoul. The Hangul words in the background spell out "Hanguk" (i.e. South Korea). 
  • "Beauty of the Land" features landmarks in Seoul, namely Gyeongbokgung (Gyeongbok Palace) and Namsan Tower. 
  • "Bounty of the Land" has a composition inspired by the South Korean flag. The elements include native fruits and vegetables and common dishes like Japchae (fried noodles).
