About the artists:
Violeta Barcenas - Violet Red is a Nicaraguan artist based in Washington, D.C.
She is a woman, artist, illustrator, mother, feminist... She has been traveling since I am 9, and her art has become an abstract reflection of the little corners around the world that have become part of her lives.
she likes to travel and meet new people with cool stories. she doesn't shy away from a well spent weekend at home in her hammock reading a book. A part of her thinks that life should be spent reading books, watching movies and relaxing with family over a good beer and with a great friend. However, the other part :-) knows working hard every day is key to survive!
Some days she longs to return to the places she has visited, - especially her favorite beach in Nicaragua, San Juan del Sur - and some days she wishes she could hop on a plane and travel to some cool pacific island. Adventure, similarly to work, is another key to survival; and when you mix them together you find the ultimate key to happiness.

Robin Ha is the author and the illustrator for Cook Korean!: A Comic Book With Recipes, a New York Times bestseller cookbook graphic novel. She was born in South Korea and moved to the United States when she was fourteen. After graduating from RISD, I've been working as a freelance cartoonist and an illustrator in NY and Washington DC. She is currently working on a memoir graphic novel, Almost American Girl which is about her immigration experience from Seoul, Korea to Huntsville, Alabama. Almost American Girl is scheduled to come out in January 2020, published by Balzer + Bray, an imprint of Harper Collins.
Robin's mission as an artist is to share her cultural and personal experiences through comics. Aside from drawing comics, she has been giving numerous talks and cooking demos to share her knowledge and love for Korean food culture around the United States.
As much as she loves to draw, she loves to eat. Her plan is to travel to new places around the world and taste their food and draw comics about them. There is really no food that she wouldn't try at least once in her life. She doesn't have a sweet tooth though. She always goes for bacon over baked goods.
