西游记 (Xīyóu jì): These three characters mean Journey to the West, which is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature.

An artist turned each character into a vivid drawing, based on the people and plots in the original stories.

The artist said that he was inspired by Western artists and wanted to create something unique using Chinese elements.
