No wifi

No Wifi!

“I’m going to end my misery! There’s simply no point in going on! I just can’t get a good wifi connection out here!”

Created by Lu Kesi and based on a painting by Zhang Ruitu (張瑞圖 1570-1641), a Ming dynasty artist. This work is an example of copying something by an earlier artist in order to learn their style, and then updating it and having a bit of fun—with apologies to Zhang.
