So Scott can hear heartbeats right? The look on his face when Lydia wouldn’t wake up after she screamed makes me think she actually was dead. She died and Stiles literally brought her back.
“Someone who can pull you back.”
Meet illustrator Jun Kim whose eerie & beautifully pop style reconnects us with some of our favorite movie classics, Get to know her and her inspiration in our artist spotlight interview…
Skelanimals: Where are you from and how did you get to where you are now? I was born in Anaheim, CA then moved to Korea, where I spent my childhood. I came back to the states few years ago and moved to NYC to attend the art school. I now reside in Queens, NY.
Skelanimals: How would you describe your artistic style? I would say that my style is vibrant. I really love exploring vivid colors. I’m also obsessed over elaborating on details. To me, they are like an Easter egg hidden in a movie.
Skelanimals: Where do you get your inspiration from in creating a new drawing? I am inspired mostly by the books and films that I love.
Skelanimals: How does pop culture inspiring you as many of your artwork are pop culture reference? Since I was a kid, I’ve always been fascinated by stories that are far from reality. This took a huge part in forming who I am. So, when I paint based on pop culture, it’s about myself at the same time. Last year, I’ve started posting my illustrations on social media. Many audiences left comments on how my illustrations have reconnected them with the books and films that I used as a reference. It is fascinating that I can share my memories and thoughts through my illustration and connect with strangers from all around the world.
Skelanimals: What music is currently on your playlist? “Between the bars” by Elliott Smith, “I will try anything once” by The strokes, “Sister Ray” by The Velvet Underground, “Panic” by The Smiths, “Jolene”, “In the cold, cold, night” by The White Stripes, “Everybody’s changing” by Keane, “All I want” by Joni Mitchell, and “Heroes” by David Bowie.
Skelanimals: What’s your spirit animal? Corgis. They’re good to my spirit.
