    This looks awesome!! I’m really loving the antique cars in the city one.

    And the country one feels very old style chinese paintings.

    • Hello, Fig says:

      yeah i thought the country one looked Chinese too.. they’re both taken from old issues of ‘Punch’ magazine. some amazing artists in there, i’m happy to cling to their coat-tails!

    The bowl looks 1970s but the cars look 1930s, and the second one looks like those murals on walls at Chines restaurants, which always give me the willies, so the first one is mucho mas mejor.

    • Hello, Fig says:

      hey kerbey, yep 30s and 70s, spot on! i love those old Chinese watercolours.. how come they give you the willies..?! 😀

      • kerbey says:

        Maybe it’s the Fu Manchu pencil mustaches and the long robes they wear, the black buns on men (why is their hair like that?), the zigzaggy trees, fog and pagodas. All of it creeps me out. I block it out while I eat kung pao shrimp.

    Now you have me singing “Animal Crackers in My Soup” with Shirley Temple and The Marx Brothers sitting at the surreal table you set. 😀

    Excellent composition.
