A new piece of art for the Coffee Temple coffee I bow down to.
Who's the top-dawg barista in all of Korea?
It's this guy!
In celebration of my favorite barista (Sahong Kim) and my favorite coffee house (Coffee Temple),
I'm cooking up a new t-shirt and some wall graphics. Sahong won top barista in Seoul for 2015
and is on his way to Dublin to represent Korea at the World Barista Championship. Whoop!
Simon the Saxophone Playing Squid is a collaboration between Skype, Pereira & O'Dell, the Little Waves Band and me.
With parents facing a ever expanding global business landscape, work hours extending late into the night and long business
trips to contend with, we wanted to create a picture book they could share with their children directly over Skype.
Simon the Saxophone-Playing Squid is a free digital children’s book that is part of the larger Skype campaign launched by
Pereira & O'Dell in 2014, "The Things We Can Do", which shows how real people use Skype to enhance their everyday life.
Find the entire digital book here.
Here's a little behind the scenes video of the Little Waves Band using Skype to work on Simon's theme song:
A new hot-sleeve for Coffee Temple, Seoul.
Thanks Books Exhibit
In Korea, the month of May features Children's Day, Parent's Day, Teacher's Day and
Buddha's Birthday. It is a spectacular month of lantern-lit parades, big celebrations and
much thanksgiving. So THANKS BOOKS and I decided to dedicate the entire month to the
spirit of giving THANKS, and specifically to thanking the people who make our lives so lovely.
A BiG Thanks to Sunyoung from Penguin Korea and the artist Soongu for setting up
the THANKS MONTH show with me at THANKS BOOKS this Friday! Sungoo surprised
me with a carved wooden Thank You, Octopus duo for the table and made a few teeny
Thank You, Octopus pop-up cards to place around. So cool! We set out the buttons,
stickers, books and greeting cards – then assembled the huge wall stickers.
The final step was velcro-ing a bunch of markers to the wall so people can graffiti their
gratitude in the Thank You, Octopus speech bubble. I thanked my mom. Jonah drew
two monsters and even signed his name to the artwork. Caroline thanked Dwight
School Seoul and Cup of Jo.
