Streets of Vietnam

Since living and working in Ho Chi Minh City I have found myself being inspired by the hustle and bustle of street life and culture here. Starting with my illustrations I found myself growing fond of funny expressions, sayings and traditions as well as different types of street food. 

Woodcuts in Colour

Colour woodcuts are made by applying multiple layers of print to a design to build up the colours from light to dark. There are 2 ways of doing this, either using multiple woodblocks or a reduction method using just one block each time. Here the latter has been used and in some cases light tones of watercolour are added to add extra depth and dimension.
