Happy Chinese New Year! Year of the Goat/Sheep/Ram

The 2015 Chinese New Year celebration which started on February 19th, ends tomorrow on March 5th when the moon is full.  Best wishes for a wonderful, prosperous, joyful year!  Each year I illustrate the Chinese zodiac animal to send wishes to everyone.  I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Chinese New Year 2014!   Wishing you joy, peace, hope and prosperity in the auspicious Year Of The Horse.  I hope you will surmount the challenges you face and enjoy the successes you’ve worked for and earned! Every Chinese New Year, I enjoy coming up with an illustration to celebrate the particular animal that is represented in that year by the Chinese Zodiac.  While I’m not an expert on Chinese Astrology, I like to think that creating this annual illustration makes me feel that I’m a little connected to my Chinese Heritage, in spite of being a 6th generation Chinese American!  Sometimes it’s very difficult to draw certain animals I might not be so fond of and is for me a challenge to find the beauty that nature created.  For instance, last year the 2013 animal was the Snake.  My snake illustration surprised me because it came out beautifully, I thought.  Here is last years Chinese New Year greeting.  If you’d like to learn more about Chinese Astrology you can click here or do an online search where there is a plethora of information on the subject!
