I had seen Daxiong's set-up at a previous show and he was booked, so I could not get a sketch. This morning I was there as he was setting up and was able to get in a request before anyone else. I choose the Chinese New Year FDC to told Daxiong to do what ever he pleased. His rendering of the beautiful woman offset by the magnificent dragon in the background is more than I could have imaged...
