I was in China at the time, cycling to work every day in one of the busiest roads of Shanghai when I received this task. The old lady was more of a secondary character in this show. After drawing super hip kids and teens for over a decade, she felt so refreshing I just couldn't stop.In the script there was no mentioning of scooters and reckless driving, but for some reason I felt she's crazy/cool enough to drive like the people around me on Julu Lu.
Later on I though maybe she has a pesky little neighbor
and a good childhood friend to laugh, to quarrel, to gossip and fight ruffians.
