Soosan Joon Silanee is a fantastic, smile promoting artist in NYC. Her illustrations go down so smooth, a Shel Silverstein/Dr. Seuss blend with a dash of fashion and a sophisticated, playful back. So good. Some artists shy away from letting their work be a representation of their personality, but Soosan thrives at letting each piece show a piece of herself, be it an object, a head nod or passion – her work never feels labored, it feels loved. I talked with Soosan about the biggest inspiration in her life, her mother, her love of fashion and for good measure, a little Stephen Colbert.
Serial Optimist: Hi Soosan! When was the last time you laughed really hard, and why?
