Launch Event: The Yellow Monkey Emperor’s Classic of Chinese Medicine
Mon 31 October 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
Singing Dragon are hosting a launch event for Damo Mitchell's and Spencer Hill's new book: The Yellow Monkey Emperor’s Classic of Chinese Medicine - a textbook in comic form which covers diagnosis of the syndromes in words, pictures, and Daoist jokes.
Spencer Hill will be attending and talking at the event, and available to sign copies on the night.
Learn and remember the syndromes of Chinese medicine, their causes, symptoms and treatment protocols with these witty cartoons, rich with Daoist in-jokes. Each cartoon tells the story of an animal seeking diagnosis from a wise animal sage and is accompanied by a concise, clear analysis of the associated syndrome.
'Harmony plays a big part both in Chinese Medicine and cartooning. Not only must the cartoonist produce amusing drawings, but each drawing also needs to clearly communicate its concept, whether serious or funny. Cartoons which are intended as aids to understanding and memory introduce one more vital requirement to the harmony - a deep knowledge and affinity with the concepts being conveyed. Spencer Hill's cartoons harmonise these ingredients beautifully and, coupled with Damo Mitchell's expertly and clearly written text, will enable any reader to balance laughter and learning with the greatest of ease.' - John Byrne, Cartoon Tutor, The London Art College
