Sorry, because I am a South Korean.
I can’t speak English fluently.
But I want to tell my story.
In 2003, I was twenty-five years old.
Back then I wanted to be an illustrator.
But then I didn’t know how to become one.
Then there was an art market at the playground near Hongik University of Korea.
That art market was called ‘Free Market’.
I went to the Free Market and I sold my products.
I was one of the popular artists. I got noticed.
Then one day,
I was introduced to the famous fashion magazine ‘Seventeen’ Korea.
I’ve been commissioned to illustrate for that magazine.
It was how I became an illustrator in South Korea.
I wanted to say:
If you want to become an illustrator, you must find a way.
If you do not show your works, no one will see your possibilities. - Hajin Bae
