China: Land of Lots of Chinese People and Chinese Things


So I've been in China and Taiwan for the past couple of weeks.

I went with my sister, Elaine and my mother. You may or may not know them.

Anyhow, I'll post up a few pages from a sketchbook I started while I was abroad and also 3 spreads from my zine Ursus Majorsys.

I will tell you about the many tales I have brought back with me from Asia, but not now.

Here is a primer:
There are many, many, many stray dogs in China. I bet that you could build a whole entire second Great Wall of China using only stray dogs and mortar in which case it would probably be named the Great Dogwall of China or "Chang Go Cheng" in Mandarin. In fact, there are so many dogs (specifically in the Yunnan province) that they make tote bags out of them.

Taiwanese trees and the girl-figure I stole from one of Vincent Hui's paintings:

Ursus Majorsys

But I really do have lots of stories. So come back lots of times to hear all of them.
