Five years ago I was waiting for the shuttle bus to swimming pool. During the short time just before the bus arrived I tried to sketch the street scenery with electric poles across the Jinheung-ro, Gugi-dong, Seoul. pencil(7B), 18 x 25 cm
I remember that I drew this pole with so many wires of electricity and internet cables at the spot where I was waiting for the shuttle bus looking upward.
I drew this one with pen and pastels at Gongdeok-dong, Seoul caught by the creeper on street tree near the lamp poles. A 4
I sketched this one at the alley in Yeji-dong, Jongno 3-ga, Seoul. There were lots of small jewelry shops for repairing or selling. This building (Daeseong building, I remember) was a big one where countless shops located in. The electric pole seemed to stand by all those pulling wires. conte, A 4
I could pass the really complicated spot with four crane trucks for changing some electric equipment on poles. I just stopped to capture though it was very cold. The extending tools kept moving and every other cranes too. I could draw only limited parts of them. charcoal, A 4
Though all these intricate wires never look beautiful, it needs tremendous amount to bury them into the ground. Convenience in using and setting them returns inconvenience in views. I enjoyed these scenery for sketching hoping such problems to be solved one by one.
