"Spring in the House"

This collection of miniature penjing in a bogu frame, by Li Yunlong, is titled Spring in the House. Photo borrowed from Penjing: The Chinese Art of Bonsai by Zhao Qingquan (Better Link Press, 2012).

Previously, I posted other penjing photos here & here.

A book full of these would be pretty nice.

Not many frames, but lots of asemic & abstract content.

Partly inspired by a literary novel written by 7 authors.

Intercorstal 2 Page 7

Another new Intercorstal page, again taking the panel layout from a page in New Statesmen, although this time it's been inverted.

The Intercorstal (New Statesmen)

Panel layout and some content bitten from one of Sean Phillip's pages from The New Statesmen. The contents of the larger first panel are very much inspired by Mr Soft (a character from the book that I've mentioned before) but I hadn't realised until I drew in his arms.

New Statesmen ran in the 2000AD offshoot 'Crisis' in the late 80s, a period which I'm very influenced by at the moment.
