1974 Adam And Eve
In 1974, Huang Yao created his last cartoon series. This final set was called Eve and Adam and differed in style from his previous works. The painterly drawings depicted a naked Adam and Eve as early humans. The pair is dependent on each other, inventing tools, hunting, painting abstract art and, most notably, discovering early Chinese character writing together. Scholars argue that the Eve and Adam set offers a glimpse of another important stage in Huang Yao’s artistic journey: a preoccupation with pictographs, hieroglyphs and ancient Chinese characters that would last the rest of his lifetime.
