I felt really inspired to make something after attending the "Women in Animation" show opening and seeing all the amazing art there. So I decided to make a paper cut out for the Chinese New Year, which just so happens was the next day.
This was the result. It's entirely paper, with a little gouache for some details.
I've always enjoyed Chinese art, especially their paper cut outs, so I wanted to incorporate that into this piece.
The sign on the snake head is the Chinese symbol "Fu" which means "blessing, good fortune, good luck" in the new year.
I just wanted to share some exciting news with everyone! These past few weeks I've been in the process of moving across the country. Now I have my own apartment in Burbank, CA! I'm still looking for work out here but I love it out here so much that I'm going to try and have some fun as well. Thank you for your support and your kind thoughts!
