Uncomfortably Happily
by Yeon-sik Hong

New D+Q! In 2005, cartoonist Yeon-sik Hong and his wife moved to the Korean countryside in order to escape the hubbub of city-living. Uncomfortably Happily explores—in exquisite, minimal art—the unexpected anxieties that crop up in their attempt at “simple” living.

Blind Spot

Blind Spot
