I went to China town in manhattan. I was able to see and experience a lot chinese culture, but I also saw some parts of nyc mixed in there as well. I was particularly fascinated by those visuals and thus I wanted to convey that idea to my postcards. I was inspired by the watercolor paintings of chinese women wearing qi pao (chinese traditional dress) while i was walking towards mott street. I wanted to portray the idea of mergence of the east and the west, so I incorporated the watercolor(western) technique  with the traditional chinese painting method, using chinese ink.
