Lyssa Park: An Illustrated Series

Inside this issue’s incidental illustrations with our featured artist

The series that runs through this issue is based on furniture that my family left behind in Korea, when we moved to Nevada. I used to avoid the topics of family and culture in my work: I was born on a US military base in Korea, and I often didn’t feel like I fit into either nationality. Recently, I’ve started to address my Korean experience and translate it into my work. My process changes depending on the project, but for this series I scanned oil pastel textures, which remind me of my childhood, and drew the shapes digitally.
