How did you make this work:
This project is a series of illustration created for After the Applause, Re-TROS special concert at Mercedes-Benz Arena, Shanghai. Rebuilding The Rights Of Statues, better known as Re-TROS, were forerunners of the so-called China-rock explosion of the mid-2000s, where a raft of groups inspired by western post-punk rose to prominence. These illustrations insipred by Re-TROS's song: Surrender.
