Movie review after watching the Grand Budapest Hotel
- Tell us a little more about yourself. Where are you from and what are your interests?
My name is Hyun-Ju. I am from South Korea and studying architectural engineering.
- How long have you been drawing and sketching for?
I learned a little drawing when I was young. As well, at that time, I considered to study more art. But now, it is quite different studying at university.
- What notebook do you use for your art, and do you have a favorite brand that you prefer?
Almost all books where I draw buildings and else is the Traveler's Notebook sketchbook. (Japan/Midori)
In addition, nowadays, I use postcard sketch book and Moleskine cahier.
- What is your favorite stationery tool at the moment?
Fountain pen (sketch) is best tool for me. And I use watercolors (only 12 colors). Sometimes I use color pencils, but I'm not good.
-What inspires you to create?
Oh, mostly I draw buildings! I am very interested in them as well as liking urban sketching!! Or sometimes using Korean and photos for my foreigner friends who are interested in Korean culture or language.
- What are some of your other hobbies other than drawing?
I like writing letters (so I have penpals as well, collecting used stamps on envelopes), traveling, watching movies and dramas, studying languages (still learning English, nowadays I'm learning Japanese, before I studied a little German) and so on. :-)
