TO DO NOTHING

by Yunsun Joo

ISSUE TWELVE | SPRING 2019

Yunsun Joo was born and raised in South Korea, and she is currently a student at the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California. These nonfiction comics, she calls them “stories,” are pulled directly from her daily experience. They are quiet snapshots of her life, a visual diary.

 

There is a tension in her work that vibrates somewhere between silly and sad, and she leaves a palpable loneliness in the white space between her drawings. Like most of us, she is trying to be happy. Sometimes she is; sometimes she isn’t.

—Laura Bullard, Nonfiction Co-Editor, Nat. Brut
