From 1997 to 2014 by skimlines From 1997 to 2014 by skimlines
Some of the comics before 2005 can ... no longer be found!
Some of the stuff past 2005 can be found in the gallery ... nope, it's all gone.
I wasn't on deviantart in an active manner until about 2007 or 2008.

2012: Go find it yourself.
2013: Go find it yourself.


The oekaki gallery from 2002 is not online anymore.

* I just remembered why there aren't a lot of colored stuff left from 2003: I had a hard drive failure. I was still drawing some oekaki drawings at that time, but I can't find them because...

* It became increasingly difficult for me to draw the way I drew after I moved out of Korea, because I was no longer exposed to the cartoons I liked to see. Instead, there was stuff like Angel and The Simpsons... not as visually interesting or intense :/
Time-to-time I jokingly wonder how much more differently I would be drawing if I stayed in Korea. I think I would probably be drawing way better (and probably more Hyung Tae Kim like) because my survival would probably depend on it.

--------

I used to draw out of desperation, but now I don't know why I draw.
I tried not drawing much of anything for a while years ago, and it was ok, except I had so few life skills outside of drawing that.. well, it was a pretty bland lifestyle.
But drawing doesn't produce that intense feeling of reward anymore either.
I want to see the future.

Also I am still mad that all of my pre-1997 drawings were thrown away.

Well, I can see your art was growing fine. Mine not so, I must say, but I still can draw every once in a while. I had been trying to recover my writing which seems to be WAY better than my drawing, specially because I lack the dexterity to draw without resting my hand on the paper.

My guitar skills are not growing well either, but it may be perhaps possibly be because I only play 5 times a year.

What's that last one titled? Wasn't it a DD at some point, or something? I don't know but it's really familiar.

I wish I was that organized actually. I have a bunch of old stuff in boxes somewhere at my mother's house, but I'd never guess which year is what... before 2005 or 2006 I was kind of a creative blur.

one good thing about me is that I dated most things when I drew them, or was thorough enough to go back and date older stuff when I realized I was forgetting when I drew what it was that I drew.

Some of the images I could guess when it was drawn by the subject matter / drawing flaw.
