Here's an illustration from class, which was a lot of fun to do. We were supposed to take a nursery rhyme and put it into a different cultural setting. I chose the poem "Jack Be Nimble" and set it in the popular Chinese story "Journey to the West", which records the adventures of the great Monkey King.

Bristol and ink.

This so reminisces of old Chinese shadow puppet theater. So very cool. ^^

Thanks! I think we were on the same wavelength because I used chinese shadow puppets as my inspiration. :)
