ELLEgirl korea: 100 global girls

to celebrate its 100th issue, ELLEgirl korea asked 100 girls from around the world - who have contributed to the magazine in the past - about their favorite things. i'm lucky № 82: ten questions about my favorite items and products, including favorite tea and brand of makeup, as well as music, books, items of clothing, and miscellany: "i like beautiful books and notebooks, fresh flowers, traveling, collecting and organizing things, and making lists." maybe it says something terrible instead, but as long as i don't read korean, i can live in blissful ignorance.

in february, i drew eight people (of my choice) featured on NYC fashion blog StyleLikeU (that's burberry model max hurd wearing his favorite peruvian sweater in the bottom right). here is a slideshow + interview.

*all of the "SLU sittings" series seems to be missing on the website at the moment, so the link appears broken. maybe they posted mine and decided the project wasn't worth it after all
