The illustration What I See [Illustration by Chen Nina/Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts]

Inspired by the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) poem What I See written by Yuan Mu (1716-1797), this illustration is expanded in the form of a comic strip. The poem describes a small incident where a young shepherd boy was riding a cow, singing, and trying to catch a cicada. Through the description of the boy's actions and expressions, the poet portrays the boy's innocent, lively, clever, and agile personality, as well as his love for nature. The scene paints a picture of the boy in the forest, full of innocence and joy, expressing the poet's fondness for pastoral landscapes.
