Tarot Cards Coloring Book



I’ve been wanting to make my own deck for a long time so I’m diving in! Alphonse Mucha is my all time favorite Art Nouveau artist and I’ve always thought that his style would be perfect for the card design so I’m making mine inspired by his art and other art nouveau designs. I am currently working on 10 cards that are my favorite cards in the deck. I am aiming to finish designing them by June so I can make a coloring book of the line work and bring them to Chicago Alternative Comics Festival and other comics festivals this summer. Stay tuned!

ABOUT COOK KOREAN!
A charming introduction to the basics of Korean cooking in graphic novel form, with 64 recipes, ingredient profiles, and more, presented through light-hearted comics.

Picture It: You Can Master Korean Cooking

Fun to look at and easy to use, this unique combination of cookbook and graphic novel is the ideal introduction to cooking Korean cuisine at home. Robin Ha’s colorful and humorous one- to three-page comics fully illustrate the steps and ingredients needed to bring more than sixty traditional (and some not-so-traditional) dishes to life.

In these playful but exact recipes, you’ll learn how to create everything from easy kimchi (mak kimchi) and soy garlic beef over rice (bulgogi dupbap) to seaweed rice rolls (gimbap) and beyond. Friendly and inviting, Cook Korean! is perfect for beginners and seasoned cooks alike who want to try their hand at this wildly popular cuisine.

Well, fear not, as Robin Ha made it her personal mission in her graphic novel cookbook filled with colorful illustrations, incredible stories, and insightful Korean recipes to not only educate but to instill confidence. So go pick up your copy ofCook Korean! and confidently engage in your next conversation about the hottest cuisine in America.”
—Deuki Hong, chef and author of Koreatown: A Cookbook


Cook Korean! is not just a wonderful collection of easy-to-follow recipes in comic form, it’s also a delightful introduction to Korean culture.  I can’t decide what’s more mouthwatering–the food or Robin Ha’s art!”
—Michael Cho, cartoonist and illustrator
