Skin, Brain, Heart

BY CLARA COLEMAN
@ VOL 17 ON APR 12, 2013

Ever since Clara Coleman started seriously drawing and painting, she found a natural curiosity and urge to observe and record the things going on around her; mostly through self portraits. Clara uses herself as a model for a number of reasons. Although she does enjoy painting other people - friends and models - when she has the chance. A lot of how Clara spends her time is with paints on a surface, often times looking in a mirror, all while simultaneously reflecting on the different psychological, environmental, and cultural changes in her life.

The Dropbox: Saving Lives. One Baby at a Time.

BY JANE KIM
@ VOL 14 ON OCT 17, 2015

What does it take to save unwanted babies? Every year, hundreds of unwanted babies are abandoned on the streets of Seoul, South Korea and many do not survive. Compelled by his love and compassion for such children, Pastor Lee Jong-Rak builds a safe haven for these unwanted babies in the form of a "Baby Box." During a recent trip to South Korea, Jane Kim witnessed the reality of the situation and the love that compels people, like Pastor Lee, to sacrifice so much—even for just one child.
