BEIJING, CHINA, July 13, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Modern Life of the Immortals: Illustration Edition is a detailed picture book that shows the beauty in all things of this world. The characters are the most important part of the watercolor-style manhua (Chinese comic) "Modern Life of the Immortals".
The author, Fang Liu (Penname: Hiro), is an illustrator from China. It is said that "The Oriental painter is a philosopher, a seer, an artist in life." This is certainly true for Hiro, as her outlook on life is as beautiful as her paintings. Every character brings her joy and publication of these characters will pass that joy on to others.
In the picture book, each character has a human and a monster form. Some of the monster forms of the immortals are intense, but some are also just really cute. They are animal-like, but they are not pets. They are more like respected omniscient ancient beings. They have thoughts and feelings that they can express. They are colorful, good and bad, light and dark, and their interactions cause much conflict in their world. Some are friends, some are enemies, but all of them have super cool powers. For example, Zhu Yin is a super macho immortal that has long beautiful hair and a tough deposition.
Last but not the least important, we cannot forget about the amazing script that gets its inspiration from the abundant Chinese folklore. Hiro gives another dimension to the Chinese tradition mixing it with the contemporary times.
