Eat Drink Draw postcards

4 x 6” postcard prints of Eat Drink Draw illustrations originally drawn with Copic marker and pen on paper

“I started drawing Korean food a few years ago for fun with my husband. Both of us love to eat and cook, and we find that illustrating our favorite meals and ingredients is a great way to remember them. As a Korean American who grew up misguidedly trying to assimilate, I’m grateful that I got a chance to reconnect with my heritage when I moved to Seoul in 2007. The years I spent in Korea became the foundation of my love for Korean food. Now, back in the States, I draw to keep my connection to my ancestral homeland alive.”
