Yun is a genius at planning trips. Our elaborate vacation went off without a hitch. Every place we went to was great. Every meal amazing. She did it all. I had zero input. Thank god because I would have screwed things up royally. One town she took us to was Pont-Aven. It's the place where Paul Gauguin painted before he went to Tahiti. It was eye-poppingly beautiful. When I went to the Musee D'Orsay I had seen a few of the paintings he did in Pont-Aven. They were fantastic and very different from the Tahiti ones. We only spent an afternoon there so I couldn't do one of my over the top color drawings. I did manage to sit on the street for 2 hours and blast this one out. By coincidence, my Pont-Aven drawings just happen to be different from my Tahiti drawings too. And I haven't even been to Tahiti yet.
Check out this cool blog that did a story about me. It's called Illustration Pages.
