Other images of this tricked-out locomotive from Gorillaz aritst Jamie Hewlett to promote the forthcoming circus/opera he's involved ( Monkey: Journey To The West.) The train is travelling back and forth between London and Manchester where the opera will take place.

Camilla described herself : "The artist in me finds joy in angst. In shape and form, color and texture, the embodiment of passion. I love capturing the tension, the drama, the unrest in people's faces and emotions. Its about expressing what they feel and feeling what they express."

Wow. I love this.

Monkey: Journey to the West is a forthcoming stage adaptation of the Chinese legend Journey to the West, by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, the co-creators of virtual band Gorillaz, and Chen Shi-zheng. It is due to receive its world premiere at the 2007 Manchester International Festival, on June 28, 2007 at the Palace Theatre, Manchester; it is the Festival's opening show.

The show is billed as a "circus opera", and is Hewlett and Albarn's first major collaboration since Gorillaz. Albarn is composing the musical score while Hewlett is designing the visual concept, set and costumes. The show will feature 45 Chinese acrobats, Shaolin monks and Chinese vocalists.

Her work is both innocent and erotic. Each subject is attractive yet disturbing. Audrey's precise technical style is at once influenced by both manga comics and Art Nouveau. Her sharp graphic imagery is combined with the natural grain of the wood panels she paints on, bringing an unexpected warmth to enigmatic subject matter.

One of my favorite's right now..
