"I really think too much focus has been placed on our differences like race, religion, politics, and sexuality. To me what really matter is what we do with this time we're given, what we create and the passions we share with one another. That's the spirit of the "More" line of T-shirts - more of these positive things we all have in common. Creativity and self-expression are universal, accessible to everyone. And in that regard we indeed are all in unity. People ask if I am trying to start a movement but I really think this should be a way of life"
Children's Book Illustrations
For her Masters thesis project, Eujin illustrated "In the Moonlight Mist", a Korean tale published into a children's book.
In the Moonlight Mist and her second book, The Rabbit and the Dragon King, are both ancient Korean folktales, which Eujin remembers as favorites from her own childhood. She calls these two books her "childhood dreams come true," because to create them, she used images she had visualized as a young child.
She believes that the most rewarding aspect of being a children's book illustrator is the freedom to imagine new worlds from a child's point of view. Eujin loves facing the challenges each book brings and exploring different approaches. In The Best Winds, she uses an abstract style of painting to convey the movement of the winds and the emotions of the story. In contrast, the kites adorning these paintings are concrete constructions of balsa woods and rice paper.
Imagine a Dragon consists of short tales from many different cultures of the world. The historical artistic styles of these cultures inspired Eujin's paintings for this project. Eujin visits schools in Massachusetts, and her presentation is based on this book. For Fly Free!, her latest book, Eujin sought a different artistic approach to complement the gentleness at the story's heart. As it so happened, her home was being remodeled, and in the chaos of construction she found her inspiration: the odd bits of plywood lying around the house. This unusual choice of canvas, in combination with the warm, earthy watercolor tones, brought this tender story of compassion to life.
