You've never seen my brush art done up as scrolls before. I'm supposed to send these to Andi, but I haven't done it yet. The first is bul shim, or "Buddha Mind." My humble offering to the walls of Mu Sang Sa, a temple south of Seoul on Kyeryong-san.

Bul Shim: Buddha Mind

The next work was something I did out of curiosity, just to see if I could do it: an abstract brush art rendition of a swordswoman. Andi, you like? You want? I was thinking of making a series of these, one for each major Korean martial art. The word "komdo" is in hangeul, not hanja (Chinese characters).

Komdo, Gumdo, Geomdo, Sword-way

And here's a close-up:
