Update and Vlog 2

Hey guys, I’ve got problems with my arm again so unable to draw right now, that’s why there wasn’t a comic today and there may not be one tomorrow. But there is a vlog!

Also, Wednesday video may be up on Thursday instead due to the large amount of editing required. I will try to vlog tomorrow though.

Hey everyone. Sorry there was no comic today. We were in Seoul overnight for some meetings and stuff. We also weren’t able to film a Mr Gwon Time but we will try to have Ask Korean Guys up tomorrow night. We are in Seoul next week as well, but our schedule should be normal then.

You Are Here Cafe Opening 17

So as most of you know, we went to Seoul for the opening of the You Are Here Cafe. We went to support Simon and Martina (Eat Your Kimchi) because they are our friends and it’s a huge thing opening a cafe! Wow, we realise now how stressful it is! The You Are Here Cafe is not just Eat Your Kimchi but also Talk to Me in Korean (and also third party investors). So we got to meet Hyunwoo and some of the other Talk to Me in Korean people, which was great because we’ve known each other online for a while but hadn’t had a chance to meet yet.

We really really respect Simon and Martina for all the work they put in for this cafe. Those that were there on Saturday would have seen how busy they were all day. They didn’t have much sleep the night before, got to the cafe early in the morning and I think it was after midnight when we left. Then they had a meeting with Soo Zee and Leigh into the early hours of the morning. But it all turned out amazing! I heard there was over 1000 people there on Saturday. I can’t believe how many people were lining up! Some people waited 4 hours to get in? It was amazing just how excited people were about this.

It was great for us as well. We got to see some of you guys and we really appreciate everyone that said hi to us. What is really cool about the cafe is that it is a space for creative people to come together as well. In our video you’ll see a bunch of other bloggers. Often it’s hard for bloggers to meet up just because there isn’t anywhere good to hang out, but the You Are Here cafe is perfect for this. It also means it is easier for us to see you guys as well. When we are in Seoul we can let you know on the social media if we are going to be there and anyone who wants to see us can just come by.

Simon and Martina are so involved in this as well. They didn’t just leave everything for other people to do. Things like, some of the recipes are Martina’s own recipes, both of them are so involved in what goes on the menu (and it’s difficult catering to both international and a Korean customers), and even down to mundane things like it was so rainy on the Sunday when we went into the cafe, both Simon and Martina were out on the front lawn at different time putting away chairs and putting down lawn umbrellas in the rain and the mud. No matter how successful and popular they get, they are still just down to earth people.

On the Friday night there was the smaller, private opening which was really fun. We got to meet Brad from Busker Busker and his lovely wife. Hugh was too shy to talk to him for half the night because Busker Busker is huge in South Korea. But later they had a good chat.

We also invited Prince Mak from JJCC who I’ve been chatting to for a little while because we are both Aussies. Yay Aussies in Korea! Kpop stars’ lives are very very busy but he managed to get the night off and came and hung out. JJCC are going to be doing something very soon I think…. so make sure you check them out.

And now here are some photos (most of these are from Instagram):

Back to Painting and Update 16

Back to painting

This month is going to be really busy so there will probably be more of these quick comics. My usual comics can take hours to do but these ones can be done in 10 minutes. Sorry, you’ll have to put up with more of these for a while.

So I’ve started painting again! For those that don’t know I used to work as an artist and paint, mostly realism and mostly landscapes. I gave it up years ago. When I wanted to do something creative again I turned to blogging and comics and forced myself to learn how to draw digitally. That was pretty hard but I got used to it. Now I’m going back to painting I’m realising just how useful it is to be able to undo! So now I’m trying to get used to traditional art again. I’m continuing making comics almost every day, I’ll just be making other artworks as well.

Another great advantage of digital art however, is that we can easily make lots of prints! We are slowly working towards having an online store and probably the first thing available to buy will be signed prints of comics. When we did the giveaway, where the prizes were signed comics, a lot of people expressed interest in being able to buy prints of comics. I have hundreds and hundreds of comics so we’ll need to figure out which are the most popular ones and which ones people want to buy. So please let us know in the comment section! Which ones are your favourite?

Sorry there was no comic today. We were busy cleaning out a storage room that we are transforming into a (very small) studio.

Here is a page from an old note book of Mr Gwon’s…

Update 1

Due to the tragic ferry accident and current hiatus of the entertainment industry in Korea, we are not sure when we will resume normal comics and videos. We will be waiting to see when the time is right.
