Dispatches from the Troubled City

John Struan, the fellow who runs the Super Punch Blog invited me to be part of a online art show featuring art inspired by the books of China Mieville. China Mieville is one John’s favorite authors and is coming out with a new book soon. It sounded like fun so I said yes.

As I seem to be doing a lot of pen and ink work these days, I decided to do up a piece in that media. The show can be seen at this link.

This is the piece I did. They are sky pirates in a pagoda on the back of a giant insect called a gross bottle fly. It is inspired from a scene in Un Lun Dun.
