Still playing around with the concept. It's like trying to tell The Wizard of Oz through a series of non connected images...it's difficult. I am really going to have to sit and think about how to do this.
Anyways here is a drawing of my favorite character from the story Sha Wujing (The Man Eater) and my original sketch for Sun Wukong / Goku / The Monkey King...whatever you wanna call him.
I spent some time this weekend down at the Pomona Art Walk...It really gave me a creative boost and a little confidence. I would love to be able to show some stuff in a gallery at some point.
Anyways, It got me thinking about doing a series of Thematic pieces that are all loosely interconnected. I've been playing around with the idea of basing it on the Buddhist Myth JOURNEY TO THE WEST centering around Sun Wukong (the monkey king) and the Monk Xuanzang.
I havn't decided if I am going to do this for sure or not, but if I do go through with it then this drawing of Sun Wukong will be the first in the Series...let's hope my attention span holds out.
