To celebrate this year of the fire monkey, I’m sharing the intensely detailed digital paintings of Fenghua Zhong (钟风华). He is a young digital artist in Xiamen, China who manages to capture the scope & scale of the incredible feats SunWukong accomplishes in the Chinese folk classic Journey to the West. Despite his young age, Fenghua is a concept art instructor at E-art School of Design in China. Gong Xi Fa Cai (恭禧发财)!
“I could just be hyper-neurotic and hypersensitive”, says Rebecca Storm, a Montreal-based photographer affected by a condition called synesthesia. “Technically it’s not yet an official condition, but I’m mostly familiar with associative synesthesia, where you react to one stimulus with a sensory pathway that’s typically affected by different stimuli. Like hearing colour or feeling physical pain from a sound.” (
