So, Vin Di Fate assigned a genre image in a "delivery system" (ie Pulp, Slick, Movie Poster). I think I am going to do something with the Chinese mythological creature, The Monkey King, otherwise known as Sunwukong.
"Monkey King (or Sunwukong) was born from a stone. He wanted to be like the immortals and be free from death. He was extremely smart and capable, and learned all the magic tricks from a master Taoist. He could transform himself into seventy-two different images such as a tree, a bird, a beast of prey, or a bug as small as a mosquito so as to sneak into an enemy's belly to fight him or her inside out. Using clouds as a vehicle, he can travel 180,000 miles a single somersault......."

See what I mean? Fab. He is also a character from the Bejing Opera with his own mask and iconography.
I show you these images from Harry Clarke as his work and techniques are something I have been looking at, juxtaposing with Beardsley, and Warhol, and trying to make sense from something that I am stunned by.
Am on my pressrun. We have seen at least 8 forms with two more today. Bit of a snag with a background tint and had to pull the form to correct. I hate doing that, but thats why they pay me the big bucks to go on press.
Back to normal by tomorrow p.m.
