WORKS

a multitude of illustrations and cartoons full of color and extravagance

STYLE
AND INSPIRATION

His work has been described as “a multitude of illustrations and cartoons full of color and extravagance,” “inspired by cartoons and manga,” influenced by “Asian themes,” and combining “hand-drawn illustrations with digital coloring — using his own color theory.”

In an interview with KOCCA he said he mainly works on paper, which allows him to sketch in coffee shops in Seoul, without computer graphics. Others’ works that have influenced him are Akira Toriyama’s illustrations for Dragon Ball and Toei Animation’s sequel Dragon Ball Z.

His work, though varied, sticks closely to popular culture themes, often making fun of them. In 2011, his “Yellow Lemon” characters, with “oblong heads, menacing grins, beady eyes and dental work from the ’90’s” populated a “school” with uniformed elite characters, including Batman, Superman, Ronald McDonald, Homer Simpson and Michael Jackson. After he used the characters again to “pick on” famous fashion brands, Hugo Boss, Ermenegildo Zegna, Burberry, Lacoste and The North Face; Trendhunter.com said “Yellow Lemon” was becoming a cultural staple itself.

지인의 제보에 의하면 중국 창천의 한 레스토랑에서 레몬 캐릭터 이미지를 무단으로 사용하고 있다고 하네요. 하하. 저 이미지는 분명 저화질인데 어떻게 저리 크게 출력할 수 있었을까? 새로 작업했나? 아니면 디지털인가? 재미있다. 레몬이여 쭈욱쭈욱 퍼져라!
