Street Urchins by PATotkaca Street Urchins by PATotkaca
This is the visualization of the lame pun that I tried to make: street urchins. I drew this earlier in the summer holiday (I know, I know, that was a long, long time ago) when I was in Indonesia. There were a lot of this street urchins begging on the streets below the towering highway structures. I thought it would be interesting to portray and give an image of the 'city life' (?) in Jakarta with the ragged-looking street kids and the car of the millions: the Toyota Avanza. At first I thought that I would draw the highway structures as the background, but: 1) I didn't plan it out well, so the thing just didn't fit in well with the foreground, plus drawing more cars is a pain in the ass; and 2) It's difficult for me to draw structures like that, so we'll leave it at that.

I had planned to draw more of these series, such as what we commonly refer to as pedagang asongan , I guess in English you'd call them street hawkers, except that they have their goods in a basket-like object that they sling around their necks or back. I saw one of those hawkers, a lady maybe in her mid forties sitting on the sidewalk, trying to take a break from the hectic and dangerous streets. She took off her cap and used it to wipe the globular sweat drops on her forehead. Not very special eh? Well, I'm telling you it is a somewhat powerful image because she had no arms. If I could photograph that moment, perhaps it would be one of those beautifully powerful photographs, but sadly it's just an image in my memory now. Anyhoo, I didn't do it because of reasons.

Well, enjoy!
