TOUCH this image: KODUNGAIYUR DUMPYARD

I just wanted to draw this cause a lot of girls(artists) on instagram have been drawing and portraying girls of my country into one generic type which maybe I’ll upload later so some of you could get a clearer picture of what m talking about. M not saying that that type is wrong or something but we are all different then each other and we don’t all fall into a certain type of image. It just bugs me. As for the dudes, I have no excuse, I just wanted to draw some guys.

Parallel to the dumping ground, runs a 40-feet road which has narrowed down due to spilling of waste.Burning of wastes in the dump yard by the authorities, results in air pollution affecting the health of the residents.Emission of gases, results in the thick fog, reducing the visibility level making the area an accident-prone zone.
