Hi, my name is Luke Martin and my wife and I have been in Korea for a little while now. We are here teaching English and are having the time of our lives, though our hearts are still at home in Seattle, Washington, USA.
Since living South Korea, I have noticed the many large and small ways that life is different in this country and, on my wife’s suggestion, I began drawing a comic strip about them. Hence, the magic that became, ROKetship! (ROK = Republic of Korea). The strip is a cultural comedy of sorts, which pokes fun at foreign life on this planet called, Korea! It seems like every day is just bursting with quirky inspirations. I have already stuffed a note book full of ideas for new strips.
My humble aim for ROKetship is for it to become the voice for Westerners living in Korea. Comics are much funnier when they reflect real life, so if you have any ideas for strips, please send ‘em over!
Thanks for swinging by and I hope you enjoy ROKetship!
Luke has also penned 2 other comic projects: A comic, coffee table book, The Daily Grind, which jokes about working as a barista in a ‘Starbucks-esque’ coffee shop (Available at Amazon.com )and, Rules of Engagement, a webcomic about the craziness of a couple, engaged to be married. Rules was nominated for “Best New Talent” in 2006, from the Cartoonists Northwest Association.
