That's Korean. In Japanese it would be a manga artist. We call them simply cartoonist. I like being pretentious and putting the odd foreign word here and there. xD
It's one of Raimie's hobbies. He loves spinning out stories and he loves to draw. He resorted to drawing stick people cartoons because Mommy and Daddy can't cope listening to all his stories. We asked him to put it on paper instead. And he does! He may not be the boy genius cartoonist, but we are happy that he enjoys doing it.
(He gets unlimited supply of paper, but he uses them sparingly. Thank goodness for that!)
Once upon a time, Mommy wanted to be a cartoonist. But of course, Mommy has sensible parents who worry about their children so Mommy now holds a "boring" 9-5 job.
For Raimie, Mommy doesn't mind what path he choses in future. Mommy and Daddy just want Raimie to be a good human being. Be responsible. Takes pride in what he does. And most importantly, be happy. But before that, Raimie! Go study some more! Aim for Todai! (Talk about contradiction here. heh heh)
p.s. It's actually Mommy's secret wish that Raimie become a rock star! That's why Mommy keeps on badgering Daddy to enroll Raimie into guitar classes. LOL
