Hello, I'm a 75-year-old Korean grandpa living in Brazil. My three grandchildren (Arthur 12, Allan 11 and Astro 2) live in Korea and New York. I learned Instagram to connect with them everyday. I draw and grandma writes the stories. This is how we show and tell everything we want to share with them for now and for the future.
What was meant just for my grandkids, ended up spreading and getting much bigger than we could ever imagine. Attending many requests, we made some of the drawings available as prints on this site. Thank you very much for your interest and affection.
Most prints are 10x10 inches / 25.5 x 25.5 cm. A select few are horizontal formats. To ensure high-quality and longevity, this piece was printed with archival pigments on Hahnemühle’s “William Turner 240gsm paper and finished with protective UV coating. They will come to you unframed, however, we have custom options if you would preferred a framed image. All prints are made with care in Brooklyn, New York by Borough Photo. We do ship internationally with all local taxes as the responsibility of the recipient.
Part of the proceeds will go to support The Unloneliness Project, and initiative from The Foundation for Art & Healing. Founded by Dr. Jeremy Nobel, the project believes that creativity and connectivity are the keys to help people overcome loneliness. Donations help get the word out, put programs together in hospitals, film festivals, and more. Another portion goes to my three grandchildren’s college funds.
