Hong Kong – Ferries

June 6, 2007

While visiting Hong Kong, you spend a lot of time on ferries, going back and forth between islands. Our favorite was the Star Ferry, which looks as though it hasn’t changed in fifty years. The ferry rides were always a welcome relief from the close heat of the city. Here are a few sketches done from the ferry, going between Kowloon and Central Hong Kong, or out to Cheung Chau Island- unfortunately, I never sketched the ferries themselves. They move quickly through the water, so please be indulgent – I had to sketch fast!

Again, the format of my blog just doesn’t accommodate the double-page moleskine format so go here to have a better look.

I also tried sketching some of the people on the ferries – hard to find anyone who’d stay still for very long, but here are a couple :
