Kyung Soon Park
Great new find for me. I love how she has pronounced her lines through a soft colour pallet. The core characters seem to float through and over the context of the artworks making them feel very much alive. All in all her illustrations feel uncluttered, interesting, alive and beautiful.
She has a more organic feel to James Jean probably due to her mediums which are water colour and ink. There is an uncanny similarity between Kyung – Adventure and James Jean – Haze, dont you think? I would also say her subject matter is similar to both James Jean and Yuko Shimizu but a more subtle version of Yuko Shimizu.
Quote from the illustrator: “I try to set the tone of the story being told. Everybody comes with their own unique set of preconceptions that can alter challenge, or reinforce.” Enjoy!
