Pen, ink and stitching on Lokta Paper, which is a handmade artisan paper indigenous to Nepal. I was inspired to do this drawing based based on a memory of a concert I attended at The Wexner Center of the Arts in Columbus, Ohio. They brought in Tuva Throat singers from Mongolia.

Located nearby Hong Kong, Guangzhou(also known as "Canton") is the third biggest city in China, but is much less known internationally compared to Beijing and Shanghai. Guangzhou was a major trade port throughout the Chinese history, leaving a legacy of architectures of both Western styles and traditional Chinese styles.
It's easy to visit Guangzhou's major attractions in one day, and metro is arguably the best way to do so. Currently, there are 10 lines of metro, one of which operates on a driver-less automated system. The metros are new, clean, bright and efficient.
