The first time I met Baek Hee-na’s stories was an interview on a show. Originally, she majored in education technology and studied character animation. After few years of working as an animator, she became an author of picture book for children.
In that interview movie, there was a moment that shows her way to make the picture book and I was so fascinated about it. She creates characters and backgrounds such as buildings, cities and even lightings as a real model, and finally complete the picture book by taking photographs of them. It is very unique and also very interesting to see how she approach the book making through her various experiences in animation productions. Her imaginary world is not only in the papers but it exists in real world.
“Baek Hee-na is an artist who develops the field of picture books, showing uncompromising and bold techniques and artistic solutions by interestingly combining crafts made by hand and animation elements.”
