* sticky rice - fortune teller studies - falling *

the name of this sketch is in Korean, in red pen. I got my homegirl Sunny to make it up.  CHAL DOK GOONG HAP.  Its a combination of two words. One means *sticky rice*. The other means *marital harmony as predicted by a fortune teller* (i luv korean)

...random page outta my personal korean studies book...

*present day reason is an analogue of the flat earth of the medieval period;  if you go to far beyond it youre presumed to fall off      .   .   .*

My first sketchbook of Korean times and thoughts is almost full- not necessarily finished- but will find its time to feel complete before 2008. Heres the cover...

My mini apartment in Incheon, South Korea.

Jammin with Korea

Thats my desk behind some of my homies....necessary clutter of course.

For momma- you asked if the leaves turn colors...

Couple of ma homegirlz. (english names Sally and Lisa)

English name is MARTIN... wise sense of humor- good chemistry with him.

Its a really good job sometimes.

Homemade halloween- no parental support so i respect these little dumplings.

His english name is GRANT. He behaves like nonother- but when I show that we can all let loose and get crazy he EATS IT UP..... hilarious chap.

korea: trying to understand. so far.

"Do ya get it?"
(word mort)

this is Teacher Geoff Mortaley. Life teacher. Brother-from-another-mother-on-a-trip-across-the-world-away-from-his-lover. Our chemistry is spontaneous- hilarious-well understood and brand new every page.

a view from geoffs apt- to understand the humor of this shot please see bottom of this post- my apt view

bitch wouldn't stop lookin at me

"step in our store and get this free gift"- in exhuberant korean

geoffdiggy connectin with kate- his manager who showed us some beautiful peeps, places and things that day- korean/australian she is.
(the one above it is inexplicably golden)

this is my beautiful view- this old man is 84 yrs old, he collects the piles of garbage onto this pully-wagon and takes it elsewhere- he knows a little english and asked me why i shave my head. "cuz i love it." he laughed and told his hunchback buddy- he laughed too.

Ja get it?
