It’s not a sitting duck. It’s an angry bird. – Max Kim

Why did you pick this picture?

It was really hard to pick one because each drawing has different expressions and emotions. But, I picked this drawing and here’s why.

I think it captured the duck’s emotions well. If you look at the face, you can feel how the duck feels which I intended to do in all my drawings. Also, I enjoyed drawing its different feather types and they turned out nicely.

Where did the idea for this art come from?

As most of my drawings, this had reflections of my emotions and states of my mind. Back then, I was unsatisfied about certain things about certain situation and naturally they were reflected in this drawing.

What does this art mean to you?

If you read my captions, they are all related to my drawings. Such as, my thoughts, emotions or reminders. In this case, the duck was myself. It was telling me and reminding me not to be a sitting duck.

What can you tell us about yourself?

Currently I am working at a company as a regular employee, but dreaming to be a full time artist in the future. Hope you come see and enjoy my journey together.

What more can you tell us about your art?

I love pen drawings. Among all of materials, pens are my favorite. Expressing all different kinds of textures with sharp thin lines by hatching and scratching is exhilarating. The fact that I cannot erase (because I draw with pens) is very scary and thrilling at the same time. I have to embrace mistakes and grow based on them, like the real life.

Also, I enjoy writing titles / captions to support my drawings. They are humorous, emotional and sometimes satirical. I hope you enjoy these captions along with my drawings.
