Chinese New Year

07 Feb 16

Tomorrow is Chinese New Year, and this year is the year of the Monkey!

Last year I did a little illustration depicting the year of the sheep, so I figured I might try and do one this year too.

People who are born in the year of the Monkey are said to be clever, curious, and mischievous, and as a result are very naughty and tend to be practical jokers.

For this illustration I decided to have similar elements to last years image, but also chose to incorporate more of the traditional Chinese style I’d seen in a lot of the images while researching the Monkey’s traits.

So here’s my cheeky, mischievous little Monkey, to celebrate Chinese New Year 2016!
