    haha, that subway is really noisy, a bus is quieter I guess

    At the very beginning of the video, he's talking about the paper cut-out he's working on, "It's not so simple, all of the wrinkles on the face have to be cut out"

    I see what the image evocates according to Your words.
    You thus inspired me for this relaxing exercise more along the Tang dinasty style though ...
    Seriously here I used the ink pen as an alternative and to feel more in line with that tradition.
    Unfortunately my chinese ideogram calligraphy isn't good enough to write a text too ...

    In the history of Chinese landscape painting, content and style were freely copied, and often the copyist had never seen the original, and worked from a copy or a verbal description of the original ... Sometimes the copyist deliberately changed important details in the original, maybe to emphasize a new style, or to reinterpret the older work for a new generation ... Here I play with that theme, contrasting my original with a "copy" that preserves recognizable elements of the original, but done in a different style ...

    LOL I reminded that actually that was the case, from the memories I wrote when I first travelled in China (Kathai) with my fellow countryman Marco Polo and his father, although it was a later dinasty and the emperor was a Mongolian, Kubilai Khan ... No, actually I'm not that old.
