Chinese Death Star
I did the cover of the New York Times Sunday Review yesterday. The article is about the aggressive global push of China’s state-capitalism and the fear of China’s world domination. You can read the article here.
AD Aviva gave me the great suggestion of maybe having an image “dominating” the page, instead of being boxed in a rectangle.
After a couple round of sketches, we agreed that having the Great Wall expanding and covering the entire globe was the best solution for this article as it also relates to the Chinese investing in building dams and infrastructure all over the world.
During the inking stage, I thought, why not also make the extending walls look like monstrous tentacles? Then my boyfriend Kyle walked by and said “Your drew a Chinese Death Star!” I am okay with that.
Many thanks again to the wonderful Aviva and the NYTimes!

马嬿泠 Ma Yanling’s ghostly paintings of China’s glamorous old movie stars, smiling and looking flawlessly beautiful, were partly inspired by Andy Warhols’ images of Hollywood actresses (Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe). Over each portrait, she paints a grey shroud, hinting at the tragedy and suffering in the offscreen lives of the divas: Ruan Lingyu, whose private life and love affairs was published by the tabloids, committed suicide in 1935 at the age of 24; Wang Renmei was relentlessly persecuted during the Cultural Revolution; Hu Die was the unwilling mistress of Guomindang secret-police chief Dai Li, and also suffered from rumours spread by the press; Jiang Qing, the second wife of Mao Zedong, persecuted fellow actors and artists during the Cultural Revolution, served time in prison, and finally hanged herself; and Meng Xiaodong had a love affair with Peking Opera master, Mei Lanfang which ended sadly due to social and family pressure.
