Jeepney Art: Sketches

Jeepneys are one of the most evident contributions of America to the Philippines. The jeepneys that we have now were custom-built to meet the demand for public transport all over the Philippines. Although it maybe one of the major reasons for congested traffic in Metro Manila, I still find them fascinating and useful for the public.

I started this "Jeepney Art Sketches" just last month and here are the recent sketches I just finished.

Philippine Jeepney Art and Sketches: This represents the overcrowded passengers as part of their daily lives taking public transport.



Philippine Jeepney Art and Sketches: It is common for jeepneys to have horses in front. I decided to change it to a
giraffe. This is actually for tall people who always have the trouble of sitting properly inside jeepneys because
of its low ceilings. 

Philippine Jeepney Art and Sketches: Manila, the capital city of the Philippines.

Philippine Jeepney Art and Sketches: For the kids who always look out the window and get entertained with many
things they see, and one of those are vendors like balloon vendors or street food sellers.

Philippine Jeepney Art and Sketches: This is a sort of a futuristic jeepney driven by futuristic people.

Philippine Jeepney Art and Sketches: The Sarimanok catching a fish for its meal.

Philippine Jeepney Art and Sketches: The coconut trees which are very common all over The Philippines.

Sketches were done using 2B pencil and ink.
