It is a very hot and rainy season. So I try to draw whom I meet anywhere. I keep pencil(6B), pen, one color crayon pencil(dark blue one this time), and brush pen sometimes basically. I often finish drawing with pencil for the value after beginning with pencil. And oil pastels are useful to carry and not to be muddy contrary to the dry soft pastels. Most people can't be distinguished by the clothing they wear but the religious people could be with their special attirement. I see so many people out of home. It gives a valuable chance to understand them through drawing without sharing a word.
요즘 무더위와 장맛비로 길에서 그림 그리기가 어겹습니다. 나름 어느 곳에서든 쉽게 그릴 수 있는 인물 그리기는 계속하려고 합니다. 우연히 눈에 띄는 복장의 종교인들을 그리게 되어 인물 드로잉으로 모아 올립니다. 재료는 늘 지니고 다니는 단순한 도구를 썼구요.

Korea Institute of Registered Architects (KIRA: 대한건축사협회) runs lots of hobby clubs such as climbing, music, photography, golf, billiard, and so on. I've participated in billiard club since last year. Last week on Jun. 27, there was a friendly match of billiard club members. Though I'm not good at playing game, I usually like to watch international billiards games very much. On that day I was knocked out of the tournament in the 1st round because most of participants' scores were higher than mine. But I could have enough time to sketch every scene I want to draw. Additionally, many members surrounded me and were pleased seeing the sketches on the spot. They cheered me and asked to upload them on the website. Everybody had exciting moments in games and delicious Chinese dishes during the break time. I had a wonderful time enjoying sketches and billiards with many familiar architects.
Last Saturday, it was a sweltering day
We gathered at the Under Ground Avenue near by Seoul Forest
Originally we planned to draw some containers, but the day
was that day helding in open market once a month.
There were so many people ,(merchants ,buyers and on-lookers )
various kinds of products and foods made by their own .
I wanted look around but we haven't had the time of shopping
In the morning, we picked s spot in the shade luckily , but
after lunch, we couldn't help sketching in the cafe.
Anyhow it was also a meaningful day !!
무척이나 무더웠던 지난 토요일, 언더 그라운드 에비뉴에서
S.U.S모임이 있었다 .원래 컨테이너박스 건물을 그릴려했으나
마침 그날이 한달에 한번 열리는 마르쉐 협동조합의 장날이어서,
상인들,구매자들,구경꾼들까지 무척 붐비었다
직접만든 여러가지 공예품,먹거리,농산물...구경하고 싶었으나
오후에는 이미 완판에 폐장ㅠㅠ
오전에는 운좋게도 탁자까지 겸비한 그늘에서 한장,점심후엔
달아오른 열기로 카페에 들어가지 않을수 없었다
언제나처럼 보람찬 하루를 보냈다

It was too hot last Saturday, Seoul usk members met at Under Stand Avenue (언더스탠드 애비뉴) located between Seoul Forest (서울숲) and Seoul Forest Station. Under Stand Avenue, made of 116 recycled colorful containers complex, is attracting locals and tourists in eastern Seoul. The complex serves as a creative public cultural space for teenagers, artists, local vendors and small brands. There is also an outdoor stage for cultural performances, local community organize special events and various workshops every month. The very day we visited Under Stand Avenue, it was market day once a month on 4th Saturday for the food and beverage produced by urban farmers. The street mall was full of open-air shops with temporary colorful tents and crowded people. Unfortunately many stores and unique restaurants on the 2nd floor rooftop were under renewal construction, we couldn't help sketching outdoors on the ground level in search of the shadow.
I sketched the lively scenes of the crowded market with colorful tents and streetscape including nearby buildings harmonizing with moving cranes. It was a very exciting sketch time despite the summer heat.
