Alright, gloves off. The sci-fi sequel movie who has been in the making for the last 30 years is coming to theaters (this week). Let's welcome Blade Runner 2049!
Let's explore Saigon, Vietnam through illustrations by a bunch of folks including: Maxk Nguyen, Thai Thanh Do, Kawako Giang Nguyễn, Nguyễn Thành Vũ, Thinh Le, Hạnh Huỳnh, Người Đá, Vũ Hải Long and Nguyễn Thành Chiến. This amazing crew has created a tremendous series by illustrating scenes from the streets of Saigon in Vietnam. I loved the visual approach and of course the attention to details for each piece. From eventually the rain, the lighting, the character and going all the way to the reflection of the water on the floor from the rain falling down. Makes everything else magical!
The rainy season in Saigon is truly rainy. It rains from morning to noon, from evening to midnight. Wake up in the rain Saigon’s climate is like a switch, bone-dry is just one flip away from ever-wet. As hurried as the raindrops, thousands of wheels covered in colorful raincoats roll ceaselessly back and forth the city’s drippy face. Somewhere in the heavy pitter-patter, street cries still echo from the tireless feet. They keep walking because in Saigon, the rain will dry for the sun will shine
