Inktober 2017 - Day 4 - website.jpg

This piece is my 할아버지 (grandpa) and me holding hands, visiting my 할머니’s (grandma’s) ashes for the first time. My grandpa has since passed. I wanted to create this piece to honor the both of them.

A portrait of my grandmother, Jung-Hee Hong

In drawing this, I remembered intimate details of my grandma: the purse of her lips, the softness of her cheeks, the creases in her brow. I recognized how many of her traits I have in myself. And I realized that relationships aren’t restricted by narrow definitions of time & space.
