Modern totem


Inspired by Harrie Nijland’s (, Shooting Posters series, I decided to “shoot” one myself, rather sketch.

Outside of my local bagel shop is a telephone pole with hundreds of staples, nails, tape and ripped pieces of posters. Perfect to draw, perfect to get a nasty infection. These modern totems are everywhere in my city, especially in my neighborhood. I love ’em.

Thanks Harrie.
