This blog started out with two aspiring cartoonists who’d been sworn to a creative codependency that ensured our priorities were never quite in order. The goal was for both of us to upload a drawing or sketch that we’d done every day, no matter how hectic things got.

Here we are, the founders of A Prolific Source.

We managed to keep it up for a while but life inevitably got in the way. My very talented and lovely friend Zach has now retired from A Prolific Source, but tells me he may still contribute every now and then when he has a chance.

I will keep trying to post as often as I can, partly because drawing keeps me sane and happy (for the most part) and partly because of my obsessive tendencies that make it difficult for me to let go of something once I’ve begun it.

My posts here delineate the trials and tribulations of a Korean immigrant and aspiring academic/activist/cartoonist/writer who is pursuing a PhD in English literature in Seattle, WA while doubling as an English instructor.

So follow along on this crazy, chaotic journey to who knows where!

  1. It’s hard to see any Korean in your comics, but I am just dipping my toe into them at this moment. Your character seems highly reactive. But, as you say, your drawings are keeping you sane. That may be a dependency you want to break in case, one day, drawing doesn’t come so easily. I say this from my own struggles.

    Yet, as an artist at heart, it is our nature to create! Not destroy. So, let us do what we must to please our hearts. Even if so much else tears us up/down. Even if some people don’t respect our work, humor and/or creativity.

    Personally, the only way I could draw/post something every day is if I did nothing else. My creativity/ability to produce needs more time and bears fruit at random.
