The fourth week of March was nothing but calm and usual as always, until I was told that there is a competition with an upcoming due date. My colleague and friend Karen JY Sung's amazing coffee house/cafe drawings (which you can check out here) was recently selected by the previous competition <Bright New Things Take Hackney>. She was invited to fly over to London and participate in a workshop with other winning designers and artists.
With the cold symptoms residing, I decided to apply with just 3 to 4 days until deadline. If I enter and win, I'll get to visit New York! If I enter but do not win, I get to add a new project in my portfolio. There was nothing to loose.
Applicants were asked to choose one of either a table, a chair, or a lamp and use color and pattern to transform these ordinary objects into an interesting concept. I've always loved exploring Korean cultural heritage. So I made a series of motifs by combining my personal style and traditional Korean art. The result can be seen below.
And the following are detailed shots of individual motifs.
