The Internet is a gold mine of artwork, and we stumbled across a self-taught digital artist named Paul Timothy Sabado, aka Sab, a 17-year-old student who makes the most relatable pixel art about real-life situations in the city. He’s even got a series that’s solely dedicated to rainy-day situations, which, of course, involves the hassle of commuting in Manila.
That long line just to get inside the train station? #relate
We can’t help but pore over the little details: Sab drew people on their phones waiting for the time to pass, passengers of different ages in one jeepney, and even a man sleeping on the bus on the way home.
A lot of us are used to avoiding puddles and getting our shoes and socks soaked.
Behold, scenes that we see on the streets every day: Kids taking a shower in the rain, carinderia and street-food stands, computer shops, and convenience stores.
