Sketched at Drink & Draw at The Museum of Classical Archaeology; coloured afterwards.
According to the caption:
it used to be believed that this … satyr [is] tapping a foot clapper … to encourage a nymph … to join him dancing. This theory is now doubted. … A wide range of dates have been given by different scholars … perhaps shorty before 100 BCE is the most likely.
In the above, I tried colors different from the previous one (below), which was more vivid. The call is for an exhibition for homeless people, and I think some gravity is due. I still don’t want to make it taken for granted by expressing gravity with sad colors, so I’m trying to find a right balance. What do you think – how would you compare this one with the previous one (below)?
I started this one with a serious tone, but it wasn’t fun – it felt like being absorbed in a problem, without being able to observe it. So I made a new version with a lighter (nonchalant?) touch. I also added a company, because I thought the protagonist can’t be alone in his struggle. Which version do you like better?
그림을 시작할 때는 심각한 분위기로 잡았는데, 재미가 없었다. 문제를 바라보기보다 문제에 파묻히는 것 같았기 때문이다. 그래서 더 가볍고 어쩌면 무심한 듯한 분위기로 그려보았다. 주인공 혼자서 겪는 문제는 아닐 것 같아서, 사람도 하나 더 넣었다. 어느 버전이 더 좋으신지 궁금하다.
A public space can be quietly inspiring when it has seats enough to be half empty. If I were an urban architect, I would add seats just so that they can be empty most of the times. Just like desks need more wood than fits a book and beds more than fits a body.
공공장소에 자리가 반쯤 비어 있으면 조용한 영감을 얻는다. 내가 도시를 설계한다면, 대개는 비어있을 수 있도록 자리를 더 놓겠다. 책상이 책보다는 커야 하고 침대가 몸보다는 커야 하듯이.
Here’s another simple remix, made using union app. Which one do you like better?
유니온 앱으로 만든 또다른 리믹스이다. 어떤 버전이 좋으신지.
