This is a picture of some of the fascinating trees that can be found in Taiwan. These particular trees are in Nangang Park, Taipei City near my house. I really like these trees with there incredible tentacle-like roots that seem unstoppable and able to get over or around anything. It really highlights nature’s ability to adapt and survive at all costs, these trees also have thin hair like roots that hang down from the branches to help find more water. This picture was done on six pages in my sketchbook, but originally started as just the two middle sections. As I drew this picture I decided to expand it and try to show all the trees that cover the small hillside. It was done in many sessions over a month from December to January in Taiwan and then finished in Liverpool as I prepared it for exhibition in the Threshold V festival.
