This is my recent artwork. An ink drawing inspired from a postcard I bought in my last trip to Hong Kong. The postcard illustrates the scene of Des Voeux Road Central in Hong Kong. Des Voeux Road Central locates at a busy commercial district on Hong Kong Island with bank headquarters, designer shops, luxurious shopping centers, etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Des_Voeux_Road Look! The numerious commercial signs along the street on the postcard tell us that Hong Kong was already very busy in the late 1940s.
We had a nice vacation in Hong Kong back in October. Before we flew, I cleaned up my working table, packed my drawing pens and tools. How exciting my wife and me were when we were landing. And, now, I’m back. Back to work.
These drawings are portraying Wu Song, a fictional character in the Water Margin, described as a handsome young, strong man. One day, Wu Song was crossing Jingyang Ridge, and got attacked by the fierce man-eating tiger. The same tiger has been killing many villagers at that area. Wu Song broke his stick when he was defending himself and left him weaponless. However, Wu Song was so strong that he finally killed the tiger with his bare hand, and made himself a hero at the village.
