Comfort Women.

Title: Comfort Women

Description:  Commissioned by the Korean American Association of Greater Atlanta to provide a piece for their Comfort Women Memorial unveiling.  This piece is used for raise the awareness through the event and the organization.  I understand this is historically and politically highly controversial in between Korean and Japanese government.  I’m a half Korean and a half Japanese; they were very concerned possible internet trolls I might get after I decided to take this job.  I understand many different opinions on this issue.  I personally did research on it in both perspective, and came to the conclusion that it’s important to do this illustration.

It symbolizes the freedom of the women’s burden.  I hope this piece brings attentions and be a part of the collective force to bring them peace and hope.
