Year of the Rat

Year of Rat

Year of the Rat

Concept of this illustration was based on The Pied Piper of Hamelin in a Asian style and a happy version. The rats was taken out from the actual illustration and replaced with some coins as you know that in the actual story , they were drown to death and Superstitious folk might not like it. :D

二龙戏珠

Rising Dragons

This is the 2ND design for the event .The direct translation mean two dragons play ball in English and i know it does not sound so pleasant so i titled it as Rising dragons here.


Spring of Elephants

Spring of Elephants 万象更新

The last one for event .

Evergreen trees and elephants are combined as a metaphor for nature. Evergreen trees are not only green all year round but also represent newness. Chinese pay great attention to the Spring festival and they hope that they can have a New Year with all new things.

*
This is the 2ND time , I'm participating in the " Chinese New Year Lights Up" event held in Chinatown , Singapore.

Illustrations will be projected on the building of Hotel 81 from next week onwards till Eve of Chinese New Year .
