"Two Peas, No Pod" (两个豌豆,没有豆荚)
"Two Peas, No Pod" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
My older brother almost always knew what to do. Even if he didn’t, he always knew what to say, and most of the time that was enough. I miss the guy—I could talk to him about almost anything. I especially liked talking to him about art. Zhou is gone now, studying mathematics at Peking University, “putting his drawing to work” as he liked to say. I remember him telling me about how all the great artists used mathematical principles in their drawing, “from Sichuan Province to Rome” he would say. I think this is why he’s studying maths (that, and it was one of the few choices mother and father gave him). Zhou wanted to be an artist—and he had a knack for it too. He played music often, and painted flames on my bike when I asked him to. The butcher, who lives down the street, even bought one of Zhou’s paintings— two fish swimming in a river. They were the happiest-looking fish I’ve ever seen.
