A brave new sketcher on the spot at Seodaemun Prison History Hall, Seoul

Euh Jin, sketch on A 4 sketchbook, pencil

Today it's the Independence Day of Korea. YH Lee and I went to Seodaemun Prison History Hall celebrating the day. I was surprised at seeing a lot of visitors and touched by their patriotic spirits. While we were sketching some, a woman, Euh Jin, came and showed much interest in sketching. We talked about sketches and could know how she'd been eager to sketch like us. I suggested her to sketch on my sketchbook immediately on the spot. She did without any hesitation. Her work took 1 hour and 25 minutes. She promised to join us from September if possible. Another high school girl student showed interest too. By sketching on the spots we may spread the culture of sketching in a win-win way.
