Welcome to another new feature here on Twenty Years Hence! Every Sunday I plan on putting up something I’ve drawn, in one form or another, on the blog. The content will be whatever has moved me during the previous week, and this may not always be travel-related.
Ever since Steph and I left on our trip, I’ve been slowly getting back to my roots in the fine arts. For years I was stuck behind a computer, working very little with my hands and even less outside of my office. As we’ve been moving around, the world has inspired me to concentrate on doing what I love, and what I love is to express my creativity. I love photography, and the blog has been a great outlet for that, but I also love to draw, and slowly getting back into the habit of sketching has been really enjoyable, so I thought I would share it with all of you!
About the Sketch
Everyone knows that people in Vietnam are geniuses when it comes to motorcycles, generally in a way that is hard for us western folk to comprehend. This drawing is a (tongue-in-cheek) tribute to all the people we’ve seen every day getting it done on two wheels, whether that means getting from A to B, or hauling more stuff than you could fit in a small truck. Some of the things we’ve seen on the back of a “moto” range from the ridiculous to the absurd, and it’s always done with a look that says “ain’t no thang” no matter how many pigs and bicycles are strapped behind the driver.
