Jinyoung Shin - Joint of Traditional and Digital

Jinyoung Shin graduated from the School of Visual Arts (New York, USA) in 2006, with a Masters degree in Computer Art. She came to the United States from Korea as a child, but Korean culture remained a part of her. Her drawings are heavily based on the style of eastern comics (manhwa/manga), which are a vital part of mainstream Korean and Japanese cultures.

The images she make contain both traditional and digital elements. For drawing she uses a mechanical pencil and for coloring she uses digital software.

Her work is spontaneous and amazing, sometimes bizzare...
