As one of the best known Chinese historical figures throughout East Asia, Guan’s true life stories have largely given way to fictionalised ones, most of which are found in the historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms or passed down the generations, in which his deeds and moral qualities have been lionised. Guan is respected as an epitome of loyalty and righteousness. After Lü Bu‘s death, the Red Hare (war horse) came into Cao Cao‘s possession and he gave it to Guan Yu later. (source: wikipedia) This is my take on Guan Yu riding a fixed gear bike instead of Red Hare. I believe Guan Yu still look pretty bad ass with this bicycle and his Green Dragon Crescent Blade.

"All shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well," is attributed to Julian of Norwich, an English anchoress, Christian mystic and theologian. Her Revelations of Divine Love, written around 1395, is the first book in the English language known to have been written by a woman. Her wise words come to me often as a mantra to get me through these trying times. The fact that she wrote this so long ago gives me an extra dose of hope. ©052217

ey! I’ve decided to do a series of portraits of people that influenced me as an artist and human being. It’s gonna be kind of my personal expression of those people and fictional characters. So, number one is G-dragon from Korea! K-pop singer, song writer, producer. artist and faschionista. He always reminds me that being different is absolutely delightful.
