KoreAm Feature

Mmmmmm Daniel Henney......yum

Welp, I'm finally a published artist! That's so weird to me haha- My work is being featured in this months edition of KoreAm Magazine, one of the leading publications in Korean American journalism!
A while back I did a painting for a spot in the Dari Project's collective book on Korean LGBTQ stories and KoreAm magazine chose to feature my piece in their article about it- I have yet to see the article so who knows, maybe they made me sound like a fool for all I know but it was a fun experience being interviewed by the magazine!  If you can, help support this awesome magazine and pick up a copy! You can purchase one online as well.

The cover story is available online as well on their website

SUCCESS and A New Venture

It's been almost a month since my Kickstarter campaign was successfully funded, and life hasn't slowed down, AT ALL!  I thought it would get a little bit less hectic but it's quite the contrary- but in a good way!  I'm so motivated to finish this film that I've been working nonstop; I set a 9-5 daily schedule but I often find myself working well into the night :)

I feel bad since I've sort of been neglecting this blog, but it's only because I have a new one specifically for the new film!  While I will still be updating here as well, I'll be keeping it mainly about outside work with some film updates here and there.  If you would like to check out the Production Blog for Arrival, you can check it out here!

Please follow me on this amazing new journey! I promise you won't be disappointed :)

12 hours down, 696 to go (I think, was never good with math)

It's finally here!! Can you believe it?! It's taken me nearly 2 months to put this together but I finally launched the Kickstarter today for my second short film, Arrival.

This story is so important to me, and I think it can really speak to many different kinds of people out in the world today, I just want to share it with all of you!  Any support you can give the film is so encouraging to me- whether it's a monetary donation, sharing it on your blog or facebook (or just anywhere on the internet!), or if you have just said something really kind about it, Thank you so much.

It's only been 12 hours but we've ALREADY raised $1,600 of the $20,000 goal! That's incredible! I couldn't stop staring at my computer today because I was so excited and antsy hahaha.

Thank you all again for everything up to this point.  Here's to the next 29 days!  Funding officially ends at 10am on 2/20/13!

Below i've attached the video on the kickstarter page, but if you would like to be taken to the actual website, just click here! or click the banner at the beginning of the post!


Arrival is about a boy, growing up with his mother in the countryside, who journeys into the big city to follow his dreams. All the while the two communicate by sending pictures back and forth to each other, sharing their now completely different lives.  Along the way he meets another boy with whom he is determined to share his life with. However, when tragedy strikes, the boy becomes stuck in a cycle of indifference rather than standing up and facing his problems. 
Though it is said (and certainly not disputed) that the "journey" is the real story, at some point we have to arrive at our destination. The decisions we make once we get there define us just as strongly as the decisions that brought us there in the first place

It has been QUITE some time since I've posted, but that's only because I've been working really hard for the past 2 months on fine tuning my Kickstarter Page for Arrival!  I cannot wait to debut it this month (hopefully within the next week or so) so you can all see what I've been up to!

I'll make another post when it goes live, and if any of you have blogs of your own and want to help share the awareness please do!  I can use all the help I can get :)

For now, take a peak at the "Story" Page
