Return to Hong Kong
posted:
We're back in Hong Kong for the month of August, and here are some sketches from the past week. I was hoping that I would be able to pick up where I left off when we lived here last year. So far I've been able to find the same groove, sketching in local street markets. It seems like I never left. Most of my favorite shops and characters are still here:
Sketch of a jolly fishmonger, Mong Kok East wet market, Hong Kong. This man hummed tunes and engaged a small crowd in front of his stall with his repartee while he deftly butchered a fish for a waiting customer. Signs of the messy butchering process are everywhere which led me to use stronger colors than usual.

Tailor shop, Kowloon, Hong Kong. This tailor's shop is in a metal shed in a dark alley about 10 yards off very busy Mody Road. It's right near the Hui Lau Shan juice bar where we went to get mango drinks.
