Wherever I am, it's usually the people around me who inspire me most. Since November 1st, I'm in Brooklyn, New York. Here I met Jae whom I am currently sharing house with. He's a lovely person, full of energy and exciting ideas. We have started collaborating on a story which might be turned into an animated short later on. The story is based on Jae's movable clothing store. Jae's fashion brand Ugly Original is the ugly original and not a beautiful imitation.
This summer, Jae built a tricycle store to showcase his new collection at different places in Brooklyn.
At the opening the reactions of people passing was mixed. Most of them didn't even notice the bike store.
But after a while some curious Europeans started turning heads asking Jae questions.
