Last week for two days, I dropped in Korea University Anam Campus (고려대학교 안암캠퍼스) that is my alma mater. Korea University, established in 1905, is widely known as one of the oldest, largest and top-ranked universities in Korea. The campus is located in Anam-dong near the downtown Seoul, and is well arranged in a colorful and natural setting of old and new buildings harmonized with the surrounding environment. On
entering the campus, I was impressed with its stately stone architecture, new intelligent
buildings, sprawling lawns, seasonal trees and natural flora, and so on.
I sketched colorful sceneries here and there around the broad campus, enjoying beautiful fall leaves pleasantly. While sketching some familiar buildings existed from my college days, I was lost in old memories for some time.

접근성과 쾌적성을 고루 갖춘 활기찬 스케치 장소입니다.

On fine autumn days I enjoyed outdoor or indoor concerts which were held at noon in downtown such as Gwanghwamun and Seoul city hall. It was a very valuable time for me to sketch them hearing nice music. Practicing drawing their poses I could learn tips one by one. Complicated musical instruments are still difficult huddle to me. Though hard it's an exciting experience anyhow.

요즘 여기 저기에서 열렸던 음악 공연을 많이 그려보았습니다. 복잡한, 유려한 악기들이야 여전히 어렵지만 해나가면서 요령도 좀 생깁니다. 연주자들의 다양한 모습을 보고 특색있는 음악도 들으면서 스케치도 할 수 있는 작은 음악회가 더없이 소중하게 느껴집니다.
