The Lake-King

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

‘Ming Li and the Enchanted Phoenix’ is a fairy tale written by my daughter-in-law, I love the story and have always felt a connection to the Chinese painting tradition, so I decided to illustrate it (we hope to publish it sometimes). Excerpts from the tale are quoted with the author’s full permission. “ Years ago the Dragon King of Lake Dongding asked for my hand, I refused him. He lost his temper and this is his vengeance: he changed me into a phoenix, my ladies in waiting are birds and the dignitaries of my court are all apes”… Here we meet the antagonist, the ancient and powerful Dragon King of Lake Dongding, in his human form.
