My close relative was hospitalized by pneumonia at Seran General Hospital in January.
The hospital is located at Muak-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul. There is a famous Seodaemun
Independence Park across the Tongil-ro street. Though the hospital is middle scale with 250 beds founded in 1987, it is always busy with lots of patients and visitors by the traffic convenience of subway and bus transportation.
I visited my relative several times and sketched in and out of the hospital. At first I began to capture the whole figure of the hospital and the surroundings. Inside the hospital I drew some scenes such as waiting room, administration, blood test room, nurses station, etc. Staying at the hospital and drawing them, I felt warm relationship between patients and nursing people. And I wished their getting well too.
