Celebration of Chinese Lunar New Year
I have drawn this six-panel illustration for celebrating Chinese Lunar New Year. The illustrations are about the traditional way Chinese people celebrate their biggest annual festival. These series starts with morning activity, drinking tea. It continues with a lion dance, a meal, and the giving of red envelopes. At night, the family watches fireworks and spends the whole night together for luck. Since I made these in 2019, the year of the pig, pigs are in each illustration. To best accomplish the main idea of Chinese Lunar New Year, I use a very traditional Chinese-style color choice which combines brick red and golden yellow.
