The First Tattoo!

This Korean man saw Soojin's drawing on the "Chasing the Dark" CD, and was so taken with it, that he decided to put it on his body. Permanently. Congrats, Soojin!

Vacation in Tokyo!

I've been very busy doing not much over here in Tokyo. First I went to Shibuya and got overwhelmed by the crowds. This is my "I'm overwhlemed" face.

Then I went to the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa to try to get my fortune for 2012. ( You have to shake a thing and then pull something and then open a drawer. It's complicated.)

Finally, I hung out with some Giant Pandas. I don't have any pictures of the Giant Pandas, because they think that having their picture taken will steal a piece of their soul, so instead I took a picture of this sign as my proof.

Anyway, it's not a bad way to start out the year, don't you think?

"Chasing the Dark" Release party is a success!

Here are a few snapshots from the release party and exhibition in Seoul, South Korea, on December 17th, 2011. Soojin Kwon displayed her illustrations and also premiered her animation for "Dreaming of New York." (See video link below.) I played songs from "Chasing the Dark" as well as some cover songs. The location was perfect, the crowd was full of friendly faces. I couldn't have asked for a better night!

And here is the video for "Dreaming of New York" - Directed by Soojin Kwon and produced by Hannah Shin
