Zhang Wang Brings It

2008 Mar 22

There’s this Chinese comic artist Zhang Wang who’s getting a fair bit of buzz on the internet. It’s easy to see why. He’s mastered the art of traditional Chinese linework, useful when illustrating flowing gowns, chainmail, and long hair, but he also takes it somewhere different, something clearly influenced by Western comic art and Japanese manga. Check out his takes on Ox-Head and Horse-Face the head demon jailers of the underworld, the hunting god Er Lang, and a demonic judge.
