Like American artist Sandy Skoglund, JeeYoung Lee creates highly elaborate scenes that require an incredible amount of patience and absolutely no photo manipulation.
For weeks and sometimes months, the young Korean artist works in the confines of her small 360 x 410 x 240 cm studio bringing to life worlds that defy all logic.
Anyone who’s been following this blog for a while will notice that I clearly did a good job of keeping this updated after I applied for my Japanese visa. :P While I can justifiably blame schoolwork for being useless at updating, I’ve been to Japan and back. Updates didn’t happen there because internet was only fast when it wasn’t capped (i.e., during the first week of the month lmao). I was thinking of locking this, but I might eventually feel some motivation to write about the goings-on of the last few months.
Who knows, I might even decide to start another Project 365… Just kidding.
Day 248: 2013.05.06
Went to LA today after my morning classes to apply for a Japanese visa. I was planning to stick around a bit longer and study for my midterms there, but alas, the weather wasn’t that great today. This short trip was a badly needed change of scenery, though not necessarily one that I deserved.

So close, barista… But not quite.
Day 246: 2013.05.04
Yet another lonely Saturday night. This evening is shaping up to having instant ramyun for dinner and reading The Picture of Dorian Gray for my English class, though there are a few more things that I should prioritize more (namely, filling out visa docs, writing my essay for that English class, or studying for my thermo midterm that I have to take by Tuesday… Oh dear.)
Day 242: 2013.04.30
So close to getting to the final, but alas.
