It's so hot around here that we can't stand it, we're starting to stick to the furniture and our underwear is chafing our delicate bodies, so how are we supposed to write a decent introduction in these conditions? We tried to write it from the fridge, but we were kicked out by the yoghurt pots. We then tried to write it from the freezer, but we were kicked out by Granny. And we also tried to sneak into our neighbor's pool, but we were kicked out by his charmingly noisy wife, kids and a basset-hound called Dennis.
So now here we are, all covered in sweat, but still trying to properly interview today's artist in these difficult conditions:
-What's your name and surname?
-How old are you?
-21 years old
-Where do you live?
-I live in Los Angeles, CA (side note: lucky girl)
-What do you do for a living?
-Still a student! But I do the occasional freelance job or commission when I need to buy myself some video games :)
-What's your story?
-I am currently a student of Art Center College of Design, set to graduate in less than 6 months alongside countless other talented artists. My goals are to get into the gaming industry, become an art professor, and to be rich. Not necessarily in that order. :)
-What are your projects?
-Working on my senior project and portfolio....My bank account hurts just thinking about it.
-Can you tell us about your website JihyeLee.com?
-The domain name JihyeLee.com was surprisingly available, so.......I grabbed it. And that's...how it started. :|
-What inspires you ?
-The people around me. Artists and non-artists, friends and family. Everyone's a cartoon character in their own way.
-What makes you laugh the most?
-That smiling Chihuahua on YouTube.
-Why did you choose this FML?
-I couldn't believe that someone didn't think of the worst-case scenario when putting a bird on their head. Really?
-Do you have your own FML anecdote that you can share us?
Today, my mom called me while I was out with my boyfriend and yelled loudly enough for him to hear, "HEY! WHAT ARE THOSE PORN SITES YOU GO TO, AGAIN?" FML
(Seriously, what were they? We need them to... Erm, compare their logos :| )
Thanks for your illustration Jihye, if we did learn something today it would be the following leitmotiv: "it's good to shut our mouths from time to time" !
