A curious illustrator, Dan Hogman brings alive the protagonist of every scene with his work, be it of an iconic building or a commonplace sight. He regularly documents cities through the medium of sketching and through his outstanding understanding for details and an impeccable eye for precision, he visualise places that we know and yet not know.

In this video from his Taipei travel series, Hogman illustrates one of those busy streets of the city where life always seems in transition. Interestingly, he titles the video How to write Chinese in 3 minutes.  Well, we guess it could be those local adverts and infographics in Chinese, over the billboards and building facades across the street, that Hogman has effortlessly (or rather quickly) scribbled in his sketch. The result, with much disguise, is sketched to the T.
