A #lookindepth at South Korea’s most creative couple.
Kimi and Iri (also known as the 12 of @kimi_and_12) took their creativity from their Samsung Laptop to the real world when they moved to Namhae and turned their studio into a replica of their famed Les Baguettes Hotel. Here’s sneak peek into their digital illustration creative process and how they use the S Pen to perfect their collaboration.

Famed for their nostalgic prints and bold colours, Kimi and Iri use illustration and painting to create the fanciful Les Baguettes Hotel world.
“We like to switch things up. Our style is still evolving.”

When Kimi and Iri moved from cosmopolitan Seoul to isolated Namhae, they saw it as an opportunity to create their own visual world

Their creative process begins with both of them brainstorming, then Kimi using poster and acrylic to bring their brainstorms to life.
