Describe your workspace to us.
It's usually pretty messy. I feel weird working in really clean spaces and it makes me more intimidated to put pen to paper. I want to see my past sketches, ideas, inspirations, references, scrambled everywhere or stuck on my walls since I like to bounce off my old ideas. I usually have Wu Tang Clan, Do or Die, or some funk radio station playing.
How did your interest in comics arise?
I watched a lot of anime dubbed in Korean when I was younger. My favourite was this basketball anime called Slam Dunk. The anime channel or Cartoon Network was almost always playing in the background in my household. My mom also read a lot of manhwas (Korean comics) and she got me to read them to learn how to read and write in the language. But my favourite comics as a kid were Calvin and Hobbes and TinTin. I got into comics more seriously when I went to SVA for college and took David Sandlin's book-making class. He's super awesome.
