The sweet William Blake piece linked to yesterday was one of the sources of inspiration for One Day in the Garden and above is another - Korean min-hwa, or folk art. The min means people and hwa means picture (I think hwa is the Korean equivalent to the Japanese e, as in ukiyo-e, sumi-e, etc).
I spent six months in Korea and was given a nice set of books on min-hwa shortly before I left. Everything about this art is so different from everything I was familiar with - it was a whole new microverse. The two figures fighting(?) from the page above helped to create this scene and the guy in the red robe became the guy on the left here.
