The Year of the OX


For the past ten years I’ve been creating artwork to celebrate the Chinese zodiac.
February 12th marks the beginning of the Year of the OX.

Work in progress; Ernie considers my drawing table a prime spot for a nap.

Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red agree.

Do you know what animal corresponds to your birth year?
Check Wikipedia for the answer.

Your art is beautiful and I love it. I was born in the Year of the Rabbit, but I prefer the Vietnamese calendar where it is the Year of the Cat instead.

I’m a rabbit too! I’m looking forward to illustrating the Year of the rabbit/cat in 2023.
Thanks for commenting.

Beautiful art, with the kitties snoopervising I can imagine it was a challenge. I think this is the purrfect time for the Year of the Ox, we need all of those qualities this year, Thanks for sharing the info, kitties and artwork.
