Cartoon Hong Kong

Sawaru cartoon

It’s always nice when someone likes your work enough to expand upon it. Two and a half years ago, the French artist Franck Chambrun made a series of paintings based on my photos of Montreal and Hong Kong. Now, another artist, Suwaru, has used a couple of my photos as backdrops for his bright and bubbly cartoon characters: a squid floating around the boats at Tsim Sha Tsui and some peppers dancing while their glutinous fried is cooked alive in a dai pai dong. (Maybe that’s too morbid — perhaps he’s just enjoying a hot bath.)
