French artist doing comics and hand drawings while travelling, capturing moments, people, feelings, architecture
I drew these portraits as I was stuck in HK airport because of the movement, while I was flying between Sydney and Paris with a stop in Hong Kong. I knew about the manifestations but thought it was just happening during the weekend, so I didn’t really worry about it when I arrived on Monday morning the 12th of August.
I had a 9 hour layover, so I planned to go visiting the city during the stop, but when I landed I asked people around me if it’s safe or not to leave and they all said “no don’t go it’s dangerous since what happened on the 11th.”
I decided to leave the security area to ask other people outside, then met nice young protesters explaining me it’s not unsafe for me as a European tourist to go out. But when I wanted to take the train it was completely crowded, impossible to go out because of the amount of protesters.
