Happy New Year!

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.
