Guest Strip: Ji Wook Moon

Categories:  Guest Strip

moon_tzJi Wook Moon is a pastor and native Korean. He graduated from Korean Methodist Seminary and has worked as a pastor for several years. Last May, he graduated from Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, earning a Master of Divinity degree.

He became interested in cartooning through his experience as a pastor and theologian. During his ministry years, he made self-published books and sometimes printed out his cartoons to share with congregation members. He hopes to learn more about cartooning and has applied to the Center for Cartoon Studies.

Currently, Moon lives in Korea and continues to work as a pastor and save up for tuition. His ambition is to become a pastor and cartoonist with a Master’s degree in each.

Moon’s guest strip is called “Think T-shirt” and he has this to say about his piece:

One evening at Emory library, I found people around me wearing T-shirts filled with meaningless pictures and colors. I thought that I want to wear a T-shirt that gives me a challenge and time to think. Thus, I began to draw some reflective cartoons on the T-shirts format.
