The Plauge Monster is the fruit of my first foray into the world of book illustration and hand-binding. After obtaining permission to use a retelling of the traditional Chinese fable translated by UC San Diego professor, David K. Jordan, I set out to mimic traditional Chinese illustration using vector illustration.

The story tells of a young Chinese boy from the Eastern Han Dynasty who goes on a long journey of adventure and training in order to save his village from the terrible Plague Monster.
