Meet Caricature Artist Marcus Sakoda

Professor Oh February 19, 2014 1

In KWOW episode 133, I visit my friend Marcus Sakoda who draws for the various Fun Caricature locations around Seoul. We have a meetup at the entrance of Trick Eye Museum and he gives us a tour of his workplace. He’s the one in the middle wearing the red hat.
