With February coming to an end, let’s get a closer look of our metal Ox fellow, ready for anything! Right now, we believe he is going to be especially useful to keep the heat up, as Winter stubbornly moves away from us.
Happy New Lunar Year of the Metal Ox and thank you for following us!
Dear all, today marks the auspicious beginning of another Lunar year and the animal presiding over it is the mighty Ox! But not any Ox, a Metal one, symbolizing diligence, perseverance, power, and excellence!
May you keep growing and improving to face the challenges that may arise on your path.
We would also like to sincerely thank you for your support by following, liking, and commenting on our works! It is a genuine pleasure to share with you what we do, mixed with the things we are also passionate about!
And if this new year starts misbehaving, grab your weapon of choice and face those hurdles head-on! In our case, we chose the noble flamethrower for its fiery abilities can be multi-purpose.
All is as it should be, no need to double check on your calendar, there was no Time travel and we’re still going with this bizarre year 2020.
With a sort of memory lane, we noticed the illustration we did way back in 2018 to celebrate the beginning of the Dog Year in the new Lunar Calendar and it seems that we have never shared it on the blog and the feeling of a sort of lost dog just won’t do, so here you go!
Hopefully it will transport you to remember the good things of that year and who knows, a great opportunity to see what you have accomplished since then – or instead – have the chance to work on now.
You can also delve into the perspective of how the current Present would seem so surreal back then…
It’s time for the linework!
Permeated with the wishes of sailing full speed ahead, hopefully with less of a bumpy road and clear skies, as the steering wheel works with your efforts and the winds lead the ship through the most beautiful waters!
A new Lunar Year has started on the 25th January and celebrations will go on until the 8th of February- it’s the (Metal) Rat Year bringing stability and longevity.
This means that besides having the beginning of the new year of 2020, it’s also the beginning of a new decade and even more exciting, it’s the beginning of a new cycle of the 12-year zodiac signs!
The beginning of this new cycle is believed to bring a new wave of new opportunities and chances for each person to make responsible choices that can turn unfortunate or less favourable situations into productive and pleasant factors.
With renewed strength and determination, let’s grab this ship’s wheel and steer it safely into new beginnings with better endings!
