Illustration Daily – Day 85: Driver

I love urban legends so I was excited to learn that in Japan a new version of the “vanishing hitchhiker” story is beginning to be circulated amongst taxi drivers. The drivers are reporting that they are picking up fares that disappear. These ghost-passengers are claimed to be victims of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami and in some instances inquire, “Am I dead?”. It’s a great creepy story and served as a bit of inspiration for this weird little illustration.
