I drew works while I was staying in the mountain city of Chongqing in China. Many outsiders have never heard of this city, yet it is on its way to become one of the planet’s mega cities, with an urban population of ten millions that will double again after 2020. Chongqing lies between the dark waters of the Jialing river and the chocolate-coloured Yangtze. Mountains surround the city. People who live here climb up the mountain tops to shout out loud down toward the gloomy city. I was in Chongqing for seventeen weeks, teaching illustration. I was leaving in a hosue on the top of the mountain and I woke up almost every weekend, hearing people shouting out. It made me to think about fear, happiness and sorrow.
