Practice for pleasure

Here's a sketch I did to practice drawing the characters in the
poster on the wall in my son's room in Korea. It's always
behind him when we talk. I don't know if he knows what
it says -- but some of the characters are in Chinese and some
in Korean. If either of these languages is yours, please
don't be upset at my fast rendering in markers. I know
it would take me years to get it right. Still I like the feeling
in this fast sketch. I'll do a more polished one soon and
include the characters in that one too.

Have a learning-something-new-and-loving-it day.
