People of Korea... and otherwise.

Hey guys. This week hasn't been very rich for lighthearted autobiographical material so instead here are some sketches. First and foremost: a drawing I did of my friend Hyun Ja, who is featured so much in these strips.

Hyun Ja

She looks pretty focused here but that's because she was trouble-shooting some computer problem when I was drawing her. Normally she is very animated. Anyway, I though some of you might like to see what one of my stick-figure people looks like in real life.

I've also been doing a fun little side-project this past week drawing ridiculous hipsters off LATFH.com (it stands for "Look At his F*cking Hipster"). My webcomic is set in Williamsburg, Brooklyn so I like to keep up to date with hipster fashion. It doesn't really pertain to this blog but maybe some of you will enjoy them:

Principals with Principles: Some Puns are no Fun


I should probably add that "Dynamic Korea" was the catchphrase most frequently thrown about during our orientation by the organizers. I think it was meant to encapsulate the vibrant culture and rapid development of Korea but among the new teachers it quickly became a euphemism for everything illogical and confusing about our lives here.

Example: "At orientation I was told I would be teaching grades 3 through 6 elementary but now I'm also teaching kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade as well. Dynamic Korea!"

Happy Birthday to me.

When better for some self-pitying autobiographical comics, then on my birthday? Enjoy! I know I did.

March 11th Hourlies, 2010

More hourly comics for 2010. They were such a good drawing exercise before that I made myself do them again. Sorry for the bad quality of the scans. It's really hard to work with copy paper, I've found.

Anyway, enjoy. Or suffer. Your choice.

Notes: I somehow gave David Foster Wallace's initials as "DSW" instead of "DFW". And I mixed up am and pm several times. Argh.
