Vote for Toronto Mayoral Election tomorrow!

It is very simple to enter this contest. Take a photo in front of the election booth, line-up, or whatever. Any proof that you've voted. And either tweet/email/facebook me the photo. 6 lucky people will win Hyein goodies! I don't know many people, so YOU have a very good chance of winning.

Here are the Prizes.


PRIZE 1: YOU ARE RED, YOU ARE RAD
It is a magic mug cup. Red is my favourite colour. I only made 2 red magic mugs. One for you, one for me. When you pour hot water, my art appears. They are In Bruge I and In Bruge II pieces I've done inspired by my Bruge trip last year.




PRIZE 2: HANG ME DRY 1
Collection of my best selling prints. Have all 3! Clockwise, I Cried a River Over You, Cupcake Girl and Pieces of the Sun. They are 8.5X11" high quality prints.


PRIZE 3: HANG ME DRY 2
Collection of my best selling prints. Have all 3! Clockwise, In Bruges I, Jellyfish Wrangler and Mr. Furry Pants. They are 8.5X11" high quality prints.





PRIZE 4: READ ME COMICS UNTIL I GO BLIND
Have 3 of my comics. They are heartfelt stories of tragedy and humor. Excerpt from Three Girls (my experience growing up in 80s South Korea) comic is featured in the current issue of Broken Pencil. From Left, Three Girls, Frequently Asked Questions about Threesome and Bryan.






PRIZE 5: YOU AND ME AND A LONELY WHITE PAPER
I'll draw you something on this paper. Original drawing on a very nice paper. You can even request me something if you'd like.



PRIZE 6: YOU RUB ME RAW
Win a hand silk screened print by Hyein! Four colour, hand pulled print on a very nice paper with raw edges. 11X14". It is titled Even When Strawberries Are Falling From Skies, We Are Sad. Read my complete story about this piece here. This is a very limited edition, I think I made 5 copies or less (and I'm keeping the most). I won't be screen printing for a long time, so enter the draw!



The winners will be announced at the end of the week. Since the winners all live in Toronto, please pick up the prizes in person :)

Why am I doing this? I'm in a total fear of a certain crazy person becoming a lawyer of my beloved city. I don't want Toronto to be in the world news for a crazy mayor again (remember Mel Lastman's cannibal joke?). I want to live a quiet life and my city out of global news. I'd ideally like you to vote Joe Pantalone, but this is a democratic society. It's none of my business whom you vote for. Just don't tell me if you voted for Ford, I don't want to know.

Sorry for the Toronto-central post today. Another apologies for crappy photographs. It's late at night, and I'm very tired from Canzine today. Thanks everyone who visited my table at Canzine today, by the way.

Come on, you don't need a dirty immigrant like myself to beg you to vote, do you? Thank you all in advance for being awesome citizens. We can make a difference. Please vote.
