Sara Zin focuses in her work on the individual and identity. It’s all about “Who am I? What’s in a look? What’s in a face?”. Her process is “a mediative exercise in breaking up features and re-assembling them into new structured forms, imbued with abstract thoughts, feelings and impressions.” Born in Seoul, South Korea, raised in New York, Zin now lives with her husband in Seattle where she works as a designer.

Keita creates composite pen and ink illustrations using thousands of scribbled doodles that are drawn almost completely improvised, blending together to form incredibly detailed versions of famous buildings such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris or paintings.
