I originally intended to call this picture story 'Shanghai Express' as a homage to Wong Kar-Wai's movie 'Chunking Express', but as this is a Christmas week, I chose another title. I turned parts of recent Shu Pei editorials into a 'photoshoot' of my own, and when I put my pen on the paper, I really couldn't help it but yet again draw inspiraton from the aforementioned iconic movie director and his collaboration with English-born cinematographer Christopher Doyle. The trick to tap into their fevered style is to draw fast and without thinking too much ahead, creating the same sense of improvisation as in their works. But enough of that, with 'Miss Lawrence' I want to wish you all Merry Christmas! May your presents contain everything you wished for! And of course, may there be a peace on earth... a peace on earth.
