[Illustrations] Local Illustrators Bring Saigon's Street Carts to Life

Saigon's streets are full of mobile vendors, schlepping food carts or huffing it across the road with a bamboo pole over one shoulder. Whether selling hot food or fresh fruit, pet fish or woven baskets, these people are part of the city's everyday scenery.

For Facebook user Huyen My and her equally talented friends, these mobile vendors were the inspiration behind their “Vietnam Street Cart” project, a series of illustrations by My and six others – Pham Rong, Pham Dy, Su Tran, Do Duy Thong, Hanh Vo and Mim Non – which feature colorful renditions of the city's street vendors' small, mobile businesses.
