Ping Zhu: Ugly Drawings

Work / Illustration

While we wait for Ping Zhu’s new site to launch, here’s some of her ugly drawings

Right now somebody’s beavering away coding up the latest iteration of illustrator Ping Zhu’s portfolio website. I’m jealous. I’d love to see what images she’s selected to showcase on there. Doubtless they’re all pretty damn lovely. While I’ve been waiting for this new site to arrive I’ve accidentally come across a selection of her sketches that she’s less than proud of. Who knows why; they’re brilliant! A flying penis, a dirty man trying to lick something, a blob with limbs bouncing on a trampoline and a whole host of weird cats are all rendered in sketchy form on this unusual archive. They might not be Ping’s best work – they’re definitely not – but it’s nice to know that even Ping is capable of some pretty weird sketches.
