Illustration Fri-FAT

This was an old doodle, a year ago when my Fat Friend Minhee got food poisoning
and was sent to the hospital, she ended up sharing a room with a bunch of babies in the pediatric section.

Hi Diana,

I sent you this email a while ago. I don't know if you have got it. We really I like your drawings. They are very original and creative. If possible, I'd really like to talk you about this company that we are starting here in New York. We think it's gonna be a big hit and we would really like to have you in our team.




Hi Diana,

I'm Jamie Lin. I was born and raised in Taiwan. Did my undergrad at NTU. Moved to New York, like you, two years ago to go to NYU, from which I received my MBA degree earlier.

So the reason why I'm writing you this email is because I've working on starting this new company here in New York with several NYU friends of mine and we think you might be the person that we've been looking for, after browsing through your online portfolio. The project is called "Sosauce". The idea is basically an 100% cooler MySpace, which we all agree could use some improvement. But since they're not doing it, we decided to do it ourselves. We want to take what they have and add elements of fashion, comics, gaming and living and take out the annoying ads so that everything looks better and uses better. In short, easier to keep in touch with friends and also more fun doing so for our users. Our web address is www.sosauce.com and you're more than welcome to take a look.

So in all, if you're potentially interested in joining an energtic team and doing something really fun (while making money) either on a full-time or on a part-time basis or in any way, please shoot me an email back. We can talk more about our idea and how we plan to go about doing it. Thanks a lot and I look forward to you response!

Best Regards,

Jamie C. Lin
