Walking to the Cheonggyechun to sketch the Seoul Lantern Festival I saw the home-delivery service man who was resting for a while leaning to his motorbike. After I finished the drawing I talked with him for a while asking him to hold the sketch book to take a photo. I thought he was a young guy looking back of his feature when I was sketching. I asked him whether the attire was a uniform of his company. He denied and added that he wore the leather jacket for protecting himself not to be hurt by any accident. I told him that he looked so nice and wished his safe running.

Seoul City is holding the Seoul Lantern Festival on the stream of Chunggyechun from Nov. 4, to Nov. 20, 2011. I sketched two kinds of animal, rabbit and mouse. It's said that there many kinds of lanterns produced from Korea, Japan, Philippines, and so on are exhibited. All the lanterns will be lighted from 5 pm to 11 pm. It looked so great when the lanterns were lighted on last Saturday evening. I could see after the last sketchcrawl at Noryangjin Fish Market on the way of going home. You can see more here.
