Good Things Come To Those In Pain
Another selection from Hohhot. Needing an excuse to get out of my small flat, I today headed to the Inner Mongolia Museum to do some sketching, and promptly engendered a scorching migraine.
Before that, however, I took the opportunity to do this quick drawing of a tortoise-monster supporting a giant slab on his back with Chinese characters all over it. No idea what it was as the Museum has very few English signs. An old Chinese man came up as I was finishing and gave me the thumbs up, so I presume my rendition was respectful.
Anyway, it must have paid off somehow, because as soon as I’d returned home for pain medication, I found that my MA application at the University of Sussex had gone through and been accepted. So…good things come to those in pain! (Sometimes.) Huzzah!
I also saw Prehistoric Elephant Skeletons, a hat made out of a rabbit’s face, and a waxwork of a kid wearing said hat while shooting an arrow, with his grandpa looking on and probably saying “Foolish Child, What Are You Wearing”, oldly.
Stay tuned for those.
