X is for Xiang Yao

In Chinese mythology, Xiang Yao is a monstrous serpent with nine human heads that accompanies the black dragon Gong-gong. When these two chums travel around together, where ever they go, their "excrement" turns pristine rivers and lakes into wretched, tainted bogs. Lots of ways to spin THAT into a metaphor about stupid-ass humans.....


  1. Nice ! I love that clump of heads. Now I feel like I need to try something like that because it looks like it would be really fun to paint.
    Well done sir !

  2. Man, I can't believe how polished your sketches look. Great life to them!

    Also, I am completely jealous of your simple-yet-brilliant idea for a sketch a day theme. Are you going to compile these into a book?
