Real Places: Morning market in Vietnam

Sketched on location last week in Hoi An, while having Vietnamese coffee at a sidewalk table...approximately 6:30am.  Wish I could add the sounds of voices, motorbikes and worried chickens, and the smell of the river and live seafood.  I miss Vietnam.


  1. Great sketch James. Must have been a lot of fun to do. And don't worry about those sounds and smells ... for those of us who have been anywhere similar your sketch brings them all flooding back!
