I was drawing in a little alleyway in Seoul and of course there was the usual commotion. Tons of people sitting next to me. Talking away the whole time. A woman stopped by who could speak english. She asked if I wanted a job. Koreans love people who can draw. She said there was a cafe where an artist would sit and sketch people for $20 bucks a pop. The artist got too old and won't do it anymore. She wanted to know if I could start work tomorrow, even part time if that was better. She gave me her phone number and left. It is amazing what can happen to someone who is just sitting minding their own business.
