Reinterpreting the Monkey King

the monkey king is one of the most famous and epic figures in Chinese mythology. as part of celebrating the Chinese year of the monkey, we illustrated our own interpretation of him.

even though he is said to be a powerful and mighty figure, he is also a rebellious character with a short temper and maybe, just maybe, annoyed the hell out of the other Chinese deities. after being imprisioned and tricked into „babysitting“ a monk, we like to believe he was pretty annoyed himself for once.
