Old buildings of Saigon

These lovely drawings caught my eye.

They are by Lys Bui and they depict the old buildings of Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City of course). In his words they are “an attempt to portray the beautiful city through its architectural, historic & nostalgic treasures which have been slowly fading away due to the rapid development”.

I like the naive style and the bright colours – I’d quite like to see some of Leeds’ classic buildings drawn this way…I might give it a go.
