While Rokas was here in Korea to visit me I was also managed to finally register as an artist for portrait drawing corner in Hongdae Saturday artist market. It was harder than hard boiled egg. Paper --> face, paper --> face, paper --> face... that's all you manage to see in those six hours. But before we started I drew a portrait for Rokas (evil me, haven't even given it to him yet) and it was like a blast for new conception of portraits, an idea to draw people together with their favourite animals or one of 12 Chinese year guardians.
Today was the last day of Hongdae free market (홍대앞 예술시장 프리마켓) (TT.TT)''
I sold some postcards, met nice people, had a great time despite the cold. Artist market is a great place, I love this idea of every weekend fellow artist sharing their creations ^-^. Anyway now it will be closed for winter season and reopen only next year february, I think... so sad about it...
To sum up during these three months I sold around 69 handmade postcards (counting only originals here, cause I lost the number of prints long ago ;p).
I completely made 78 of them, but I think I will continue making some even if there's no market anymore until I reach a beautiful number of 100. "100 postcards scattered in Korea" --> quite a nice title for an exhibition, don't you think? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
I have nine sketches so far that leaves me 13 to imagine more.
Lastly my schedule looked like a hell. It still does but less. You might laugh when I say "too many trips", "too many events", "too many creations". Yes, it's actually never never enough of those things. Even lifespan is too short to get fed up with these. But sometimes a lazy weekend with movies while not moving an inch from your bed is the best vacation ever.
So what was going on lately?
The premier of the movie "Papi goes to 떡집" (떡집 [tteokchib] is a small traditional shop which sells rice cakes) is going to be just around the corner, on November 8th, 2012. Just after the start of Christmas season preparations in all supermarkets, cinema theaters and eating places around all over the world you will get a chance to see nice warm cheerful movie with a reminiscence to happy past summer days.
While fans are waiting for first screenings we had a chance to look throughout the filming site and ask few questions to the main stars.
Seriously, is it the mood of surroundings that you feel so sucked up during midterms week? O.o
Tomorrow I have exam at 9 and the only thing I'm not sure about it is whether I will understand the questions or not (cause it's in korean >.<)
Anyway why do we have an exam in animation class?!!! It was supposed to be a relax class where you watch Ghiblie and make clay rabbits for homework.
My arts are a piece of my life.
