Yesterday I went to Chongno District office for submitting an objection related with the parking violation. The District office building had been used originally for the Susong Elementary school in the center of Seoul, where I had attended for two years before I had moved to another place. Therefore I recollect the old days whenever I visit there. After I finished the business I stepped out of the elevator I saw this scene. At first a man near fifties was busy with shining the shoes. I hesitated to sketch him because I didn't know whether he'd like being sketched within a distance of 1-2 m. While I was thinking a minute he rose up from his stool to deliver 7-8 pairs of shoes holding with his 10 fingers to their owners before the closing time. I took that chance to sketch though the shoe shiner wasn't there.
48th World Wide SketchCrawl 행사 안내 :
Date : 2015년 7월 25일 토요일, 10:30 am - 4:00 pm
Place : 서울시청사 - Seoul City Hall
Meeting spot : 지하철 1호선 4번 출구에서 나와 청사 입구 옆에 있는 쉼터 (small resting place out of exit 4 in Seoul city hall station, subway no. 1, near the entrance to city hall)
서울 시청사 건물이 새로 지어진지도(2012년) 여러해가 되는데 청사 건물 안팍을 함께 스케치하지 못하여 이번 여름 스케치크롤 장소로 택해보았습니다. 한국의 중심을 본격적으로 그려서 소개했으면 합니다. 관심있는 분들의 참석 바랍니다.
(Since new city hall had been built on 2012 it's first time for us to sketch together. Inside the hall there are lots of interesting spaces for concerts, cafe, exhibition including observatory hall on 8th. As a capital city building surrounded with historical palace, churches, and business buildings we may find nice subjects in and out of city hall with citizens. Hope you to join us and enjoy the sketching together!)
