Utah Phase 1 Poetry Book by The Hippy Coyote
Big brushes and small brushes...

Hundreds of words and logos and symbols were drawn by Buddha Zhen Shen-Lang during the mid-nineties when he was enrolled in Chinese school.

Buddha Zhen also created a unique calligraphy for writing the text on his Kung Fu school certificates and awards in English.

Some of these are worth having for screensavers...


Cartoons & Drawings

Art by Zhen

Dragon drawn by Zhen
Artwork by Zhen
used for Kung Fu Certificates.

This dragon drawing was done by Zhen standing outside one of his favorite Chinese restaurants in Utah. A similar dragon was mounted on the outside wall.

Buddha Zhen used this dragon statue from China as the inspiration for this work.

Although Buddha Zhen began production of a Kung Fu cartoon book series, those artworks were supplied by his students. Production of this comic book series is awaiting some new talented artists from the Los Angeles area classes.



Brush Paintings by Zhen

While studying calligraphy, Buddha Zhen also studied Japanes black and white brush art and Chinese watercolor painting.

The brush art was done from large to larger and some are worth framing.

These artworks have yet to unpacked from Buddha Zhen's relocation to California.

Marble Art by Zhen

Autumn Flavours POETRY BOOK by The Hippy Coyote
Used for bookcover of Sid's Place
by The Hippy Coyote

Marble art is another Japanese art style that Buddha Zhen studied while associating with the Chinese and Japanese calligraphers of Utah.

One of his students owned a clothing store and gave him some clothing racks that BZ adapted into hanging racks for his marble art which requires soaking the entire piece of art in paint, floating atop water.

With almost 100 pieces of marble art by Zhen, we are excited about ways to put this art to use. Screensavers would be an excellent idea too!

From the psychedelic to the tradtional, Buddha Zhen's experimentation and Japanese calligraphy instructor inspired some wild artworks.



Spearmaker Zhen

Autumn Flavours POETRY BOOK by The Hippy Coyote
Buddha Zhen's
hand made monk spade
on a maple staff.

As a Kung Fu Master, Shifu Zhen had to procure many weapons for his students, just so he could teach them.

When Buddha Zhen moved to California he became inundated with requests for custom spears and swords and the belts and harnesses he custom built for them.

Each spear was hand carved with a knife until the spearheads fit snugly. The shaping and tassels were attached with an eye for both beauty and practical durability.

Buddha Zhen says that he often felt more like keeping these custom made weapons than selling them. "Some of the swords and belt harnesses I made were better than the ones I use," says BZ.

Currently, spearmaking by Zhen has been suspended, except for his immediate students. Since the 9/11 Incident, shipping charges often cost more than the handmade spears.
