T-shirt design for boxer lee jaesung, who “wears thick black rimmed nerdy glasses (when not boxing).”
Commissioned by L.G., who said, “People say he is the #1 hope of Korean boxing NOW.”
L asked for specific things. First, that I reincarnate Lee Jaesung as general Yi Sun-sin, of turtle boat (rendered above) fame. And second, that I attempt to make the style half Jack Kirby & half Powerpuff Girls.
No comment on the success (or lack thereof) of my attempts – but damn, his elbows look sharp.
Summer bender. Days merging together. This was some time ago; the first Saturday in July. Mimi & I met in Hongdae for a meal & a meander. We spent a pleasantly decadent hour walking along the Walk You Want To Walk (겉고싶은 거리) & buying things. We also sat in a café and ate cake, another one of my favourite shamelessly self-indulgent activities. Unfortunately all the terrace seats were occupied by selfish chain smokers nursing their cups of ice. A disgrace! But we had a nice chat, Mimi & I.
