Do you want your dog to fit in with the hip-hop-colour-pop pups?
Here’s what you need to get going…
A post inspired by the many super-pop groomed pet dogs I pass on the streets daily here in Korea. They are often carried by hand, in a handbag or occasionally pushed around in their own prams.
Aspiring to become an old Korean ajumma (아줌마)? Here’s what you need to get going…
A post inspired by these many similar-looking elderly women I pass on the streets daily or have elbow-jabbing me in my ribs to get on the subway here in Korea.

The initial drawing and line work was done using a Parker fountain pen (see video).
My favourite property of this pen’s ink is its reaction to water.
With an aqua brush, I used the water to let the lines bleed slightly and paint in some tone and details.
Moving to digital, I scanned in the page from my Moleskine journal (providing the background yellowish colour), then cropped and coloured the image using a complimentary red, set to multiply and drawn in with a wacom tablet and pen.
Finally, resizing the artwork for download as desktop and phone wallpapers.
So while everyone else spent their weekends getting married, engaged, making babies etc (thank you for that, Facebook), I made this thing. And I want to share my love thing with everyone. So go ahead and give it a download (link a bit below) and protea-fy your computer and phone because our national flower is just that beautiful.
