Pale

I know, it took a million years for me to customize my template. It's not like I have any more time now than I ever did, but it just had gone on for too long. I had kept the tacky green one only out of deference to Polarchip, who inspired me to blog a few years ago. She had started w/the pink version, so I went w/green, and then she went on to change her template about a million times. And I just got stuck in my ways. I meant to change it once I turned 30, and then once I got to Korea, and so on. Now I am going to sleep through grammar lessons tomorrow. My excuse for staying up so late is that I have to wait for the mosquito spray to take in my bedroom.

Last night, I stayed up late trying to finish all the pieces for my subscription series. It felt good to work again but then I had to get up at 6:30am today and take two more exams. Today, I met with Jeong-In Cha, an artist and illustrator who also makes books and does amazing things to support the book arts community in Seoul, namely Artistbookseoul. I also met her sister, Gina Cha, who curates books as well. The studio was SO gorgeous and lovely. I was just happy to sit in a studio for an afternoon and hear about the artistic community in Seoul, how artists are viewed in Korea, and get the inside scoop on the recent book arts fair in Seoul. Funny, since many of my old colleagues from Chicago won prizes at this summer's fair, and it was nice to exchange info - fun for them to hear about how the books were made, and for me to hear about how positively they were received when they arrived in Korea. Hopefully I'll get to visit again soon, WITH my camera so you can see how amazing the space is.

  1. Love it! So refined and elegant. I had no idea the green template was a reference to the pink one! Hahaha!

    Anyway, congratulations on your new look!
