qin keqing


One of my favorite classes from UChicago was based on a reading and discussion of Dream of the Red Chamber (also Story of the Stone, Hóng Lóu Mèng, 紅樓夢) by Cao Xueqin. (I highly recommend the series.)

For my final, I was allowed to do an interpretative art project alongside a descriptive essay. The above edits are supposed to represent the characters Qin Keqing, Lin Daiyu, and of course, Jia Baoyu.

I’m just reminiscing ‘cause I doubt I’ll ever get the chance to submit something like this again… especially not for an EALC final.
