Bangkok Tuk Tuk driver


I recently traveled to South East Asia, where I was lucky enough to have the experience of riding in a Tuk Tuk. Tuk Tuk's are pretty much super high powered go carts that race around the exhaust covered cities of South East Asia  at extreme speeds. Tuk Tuk's are considered dangerous by many , and seem as if they could tip over as they weave in and out of traffic. Tuk Tuk's do not have seat belts, and you may never reach your destination due to the lack of communication between you and the driver. Despite all of that I still highly recommend riding in one for the sake of the experience. The design of the Tuk Tuk's varies from country to country.
Here is a small cartoon of  a typical Thai Tuk Tuk . This image will be used later in a larger composition for my MFA Thesis project.
