Yi’s first memory of drawing was when he was five years old creating a picture of a robot dog. This memory is always fresh in his mind and keeps his passion for drawing alive. Attending ArtCenter allowed him to explore the vast world of art and design. He embraced his passion for drawing nature and animals. In 2018 he launched his own clothing and lifestyle brand, a serious zoo. In addition to growing his brand, Yi works as an illustrator with a focus on branding and marketing.
