The theme of the drawings this time is the old Hong Kong. I always like the mixture of lady in Cheung-Sam (long dress in Cantonese) and men in suit during the 50s-70s.

I also have a few Cheungsam myself in Hong Kong but I didn’t like it when people keep calling it a ‘chinese dress’, the fact is even the Qi-po in china is heritage from Manchurian, not Han chinese. Sadly most people can’t tell the different, just like people see the Vietnamese Áo Dài they also call it a ‘chinese dress’. Anyway I had fun finishing those pieces. (The Twins drawing was a remake of the famous old Hong Kong cosmetic brand poster. The original models were men)

All water colour, 30 x 40 cm.
