The lunar new year or spring festival is celebrated every year by chinese communities around the world. To honour this, here is a quick drawing for illustration friday :

This year should be an exciting one for everyone. I am really looking forward to what the chinese new year will be bringing me. So far it has started off rather comedically. This morning I wanted to do a load of laundry and was interrupted by a gush of water from the bottom of my washing machine…I didnt know what to think! Its either a sign of ill luck or an auspicious one –can’t wait to find out.

Anyway,  大展鴻圖 ! (Dà zhǎn hóng tú) May you realise your ambitions! Wishing you a happy and prosperous year of the dragon.
