Mao sketch in colour!


This is a piece for the Literary Review about the chap Lu Decheng, who defaced Mao's portrait in Tiananmen Square and then got tossed into the nightmare Gulag for years.
It seems everyone uses the standard Mao portrait to riff on and I wanted a different pose so I chose one of his smoking moments and gussied it up a bit.
