I've been working on a lot of stuff that I have been holding on to for some time. Two of these are from 2014, however the Goblin Market inspired wombat creature is from last year. I hope someday to illustrate the entirety of Ms. Rossetti's poem.

It's really hard (and sad) to believe that he's gone.
I tried doing a caricature painting of him nearly 20 years ago. It wasn't great, but almost had something successful about it- I dug it out, scanned it, and fixed it up in photoshop recently. Hope it works now.

Arguably the most popular figure in all of Chinese literature, Sun Wukong is the Monkey King, or the "Great Sage Who Equals Heaven" as he calls himself. Brash, arrogant and extremely violent, the Monkey King singlehandedly turned Heaven upside down, abolished death for himself and his monkey subjects, and did the lion's share of the work in escorting Sanzang to India. For all his criminal mischief, he is also endlessly clever, resourceful and loyal, making him the hero and main character of Journey to the West.
This is my design/sculpture of Sun Wukong, a personal project very near and dear to me which I have been developing for some time, along with Zhu Bajie.
