People tend to think that love can only be shown with grand, extraordinary gestures that the world can see. It’s arguable, though, that ‘true’ love exists in the small and seemingly mundane, yet intimate moments shared between two hearts. Auckland-based, Korean-born artist Lynn Choi is acutely aware of this fact, and has crafted a few illustrations that brilliantly capture those heartwarming ‘everyday’ experiences we all share with the ones we hold dear. Aren’t homemade pancakes on a lazy Sunday morning one hundred times better than a fancy dinner out, anyway?
