This book is not only full of colors, but joys and memories as well. The scenes of Hong Kong come to life through Chow’s amazing brush skill.

It is a great book to read, especially for those of you are interest in art and drawing. I enjoyed this book very much.

I really enjoyed this book about an artist's life in Hong Kong. The sketches (in color, and in black and white) are delightful.

Please note that the book is also written in traditional Chinese language (as well as in English language).

Not a "how to" become a sketcher but a nice tour of his sketches, beautifully and skillfully done, with good descriptions of location and backstory.
