Art Out Loud Online with Katie Cadamatre

Art Out Loud Online is part of the SI At Your Service program. For one hour illustrators and comic artists take over our Instagram account and share art demos, provide studio tours and answer questions live.

About the Artist

From the Artist’s website: Before becoming a mom, I spent nearly a decade illustrating and designing for corporate apparel brands. You may have seen my work on your Hollister t-shirt or your nephew’s Gymboree pajamas.

Eventually, I began freelancing and lending my skills to a wider range of clients like Edition Hotels and Glow Recipe. I might have drawn on your Stuart Weitzman shoes or personalized artwork for you at Cartier.

I was born in Seoul and adopted when I was three months old. Growing up, I didn’t have a lot of exposure to Korean culture (or, really any Asian culture for that matter.)

In college, I spent nine months in Seoul at EWHA Women’s University. I made lifelong friends and travel to Korea often. My parents came with me on my most recent trip. Being part of their first experience in my birth country (while I was pregnant!) was incredibly special.

Exposing my son to Korean was important from the beginning. But, the more I tried to find resources, the more frustrated I became. What little I could find was mostly for native speakers (and usually included an expensive import mark-up.)

The goal of Tigerboom is to help build language in a way you can feel comfortable regardless of your “level” or how you identify as a Korean. I’ve learned, being “Korean” means something different to everyone.
