The book ‘Dongsal’ is a compilation of sketches, drawings, and paintings that I created from 2022 to 2023. It consists of a total of 130 pages divided into six parts. The word ‘Dongsal’ in Korean refers to the sunlight at dawn which I named this book to symbolize the light of my new beginning.

The reason I draw is not for enormous or glorious futures but to share warmth, comfort, and joy with the audiences by depicting the small yet heartfelt emotions and situations I experience each day. Drawing, for me, is a source of happiness and comfort, an act of solace in itself. With a belief in my art, I collaborated on the design of this book, incorporating the drawings and writings I created day by day.

This book was printed in only 10 copies, intended as a gift for myself and those around me.

Pages from part 4: Words for You and Me
