This summer I went to Seoul, South Korea. I didn't fly all the way there to make sketches, but I ended up doing a small personal project anyway.
I went to Korea to visit my best friend who I haven't seen for 1 year. I love traveling, but I'm not a big fan of tourism. But still, for the first week me and Ana were spending our time just like tourists.
After a photoshoot in Korean National dress I knew this had to stop! Sorry Ana! So, on a beautiful sunny Sunday we decided to take a day off the sightseeing and went to Han river park to just lay down and sketch whole day.
In that moment, we both realised it was the best decision we made so far, and after that we sketched almost every day. Well I did at least, she had planty of awesome sketches from whole year spent in Seoul. Check it out here
So, what I'm trying to say is that, usually, especially in my city, people go on vacations to run away from their jobs, everyday life and not work at all. But on this journey, I realised that, in my case, my work and my life are not seperate things, I can't even spend the holiday without drawing something, I simply can't be happy without it.
Everyone knows the quote ,,find the job that you love and you'll never have to work again''. I don't really agree with it though. It is such a privilege to have a job that you love, but you still have to work and you have to work a lot, actually. But that's the best part about it. You get to do what you love and what you would still do for free, everyday, and for the money, that's so cool!
