Harrison Plaza Kiosk

Kiosks (or "stalls" as they're more commonly known here) are overly abundant in the Philippines. They sell everything from snack foods to cell phones to pirated DVDs of almost any movie you can name, possibly including the silent film era. This particular stall in Harrison Plaza was selling an assortment of bags, DVDs, and other electronic paraphernalia. It was the bags that caught my attention, as I cast my eye around the mall for something interesting to sketch. There were just so many of them piled on top of each other in a haphazard fashion, and I wanted to push myself to render them in a way that made sense , as opposed to just trying to draw each bag in minute detail. I chose to draw the outline or silhouette of the amalgamation of bags, and then fill in the blank space with all the details.

  1. What I like about Ryan's sketch style is its honest simple approach.
