Lunar New Year Drawings

A lot of people say: "HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!" for the Lunar New Year, but there are actually over 10 countries that celebrate the date.

I am adopted so I had no idea about the Lunar New Year until I married my very Chinese husband where the date is A HUGE DEAL.

I drew this fun cartoon to celebrate the New Year and infused a little Chinese & Korean influences.

Here are some freehand sketches I did of my daughter doing a lion dance.

 I traced the sketches to watercolor paper on a light box. Here is the final watercolor and ink drawing I did.

Whatever you are, have a happy new year! (We're all one anyway!)
