When I was walking the Jeongdong gil before I began to sketch I met a guy who had lived in my village for years. He was going to his stand to sell his goods in the street. Alongside the street there were lots of stands where many creative craft producers were spreading their unique works. I was so glad to meet him. He told me that he got a patent for this product which could be used as memo or sketch pad and presented this to me. He said that he noticed that the receipt roll paper in shops could be used in different way. He showed the other bigger one. As soon as I received this I tried it sketching the scenery with the Deoksugung(palace) wall. After I used it I showed the picture to him and bought the bigger one for sketching. He felt so good to see that his product was used in proper way. I think it's good for me to decide the size of horizontal length as long as I want. I admired his creative efforts and encouraged him. Suwon urban sketcher, Mr. Song Kee Sung, bought the small one and tried to use.

Deoksugung Palace Royal Guard-Changing Ceremony
It was cloudy a little. But everybody might have waited it to rain because of terrible hot weather. The main entrance of Deoksugung was busy as usual with tourists and citizens and demonstrators. But people enjoy to see the guard changing ceremony in the morning taking photos.
Much thanks for the sketchers and great works in various ways showing their own unique styles. Hope to see them soon!

연이은 무더운 날씨에 비마저 기다려지는 요즘에 가진 스케치 모임이었습니다. 이번에도 새로 오신 분들도 많았고 기존의 멤버들께서도 많이 참석하셨어요. 덕수궁 주변이야 늘 방문객들로 활기가 넘치지요. 도심에 모여있는 여러 관광 명소들을 다 둘러보기도 어려웠어요. 점심식사후 소말리씨와 함께 성공회로 갔는데 너무 좋아하시더군요. 언제 보아도 아름다운 건물입니다.
오는 7월 29일에 건국대역 부근의 커먼그라운드에서 제 56차 월드 와이드 스케치크롤 모임을 가질 예정입니다. 많은 참여 기다립니다.
무더운 날씨에 함께 해주신 스케쳐분들께 감사드립니다.
