Like.

(I'm kidding. I hate how social media's dumbed down communication.)

That's a really clever image you have there. Is this the printed version? What's it for? QUESTIONS!

its a painting done in acryllic. Commissioned by a Chinese diplomat working at the UN. He didn't want it stretched so he could roll it up and take it on a plane to china. I don't know if he was joking or serious but he said it be up at the Great Hall of China, which would be super dope. I had about a week to do it, which really only translates into 20 hours for me because of my day job. Also its my first time working in acrylic in about 2 years. was fun:]

I had a suspicion that this was done traditionally! That sounds awesome.

(This is a perfect excuse to travel to a communist country!)

How in the world did you manage to land a commission for a Chinese diplomat from the UN? It's beautiful, by the way. Good work.

Yeah if I had the money I would definitely visit the hall and see if it's really up - and take like 1000 pictures while i'm there. I landed the job through a friend who put in a good word for me. Thanks guys!
