Another artist is a young American photographer named Claude Virgin. He is a photographer for the well known fashion magazine Vogue. He took a lot of pictures of Nancy and these pictures will be published in the UK and US editions of the magazine. The third artist is a female painter, and she has done a lot of paintings on Hongkong sceneries.
Whenever there was a moment of free time in between takes on the Taibai Floating Restaurant, Mr. Dong would do sketches of Nancy. With her ponytail and wearing a satin Chinese jacket, Nancy sat quietly and became a real model for Mr. Dong. Before long, Mr. Dong would come up with four to five nice sketches of Nancy almost effortlessly.
With Mr. Dong's consent, he picked out one sketch that he was most happy with and pinned it up for reporters to take photos. Reporters privately called this sketch the "Taibai sketch" and it could very well appear in the movie (see picture on the left).
