Ggaedong’s House Magazine- Jung Byong Gyu meets our picture book author

 

“I can eat food by drawing pictures because someone else is farming. I dreamt while drawing this book. I dreamt that all people working became happy, that farmers farming cabbage would no longer destroy their crop, that local doctors would not have to see a patient every 3 minutes like a machine, and that clothes made with care would not see their prices slashed so low that they are sold cheap as inventory….I drew the pictures hoping people who have worked for decades would not see their lives trodden by reality. “
