Ongoing illustration series
I create a modern interpretation for each Lunar/Chinese New Year celebration (January or February) and send a digital version to friends and family. I started with my own zodiac animal — the horse — in 2014. The following year, I began theming each illustration using the year's element. There are 12 animals in the Chinese Zodiac, and 5 elements, equaling 60 different years in the lunar calendar.
I will create a Chinese New Year illustration each year for the rest of my life. Check out my recent Artist Spotlight in Boston Hassle for a full narrative on how this project unfolded.
2019: Year of the Earth Pig. I got married in 2020...What could make sense with a pig and a wedding? A piggy bank 😂.
