Gung Hey Fat Choi! Happy Chinese New YearI think it’s technically tomorrow, but my memory of Chinese New Year in Hong Kong last year involved eating for about a week, so I guess we don’t need to be too picky on dates. Here is an illustration to celebrate:
It’s based on observational sketches I made in a cooked food marked in Sheung Wan, this huge, busy, open plan space with dozens and dozens of little restaurants all crowded together.
Also, for fun, I made a little simple animated version, with the girl on her phone playing something resembling Candy Crush, which seems to be like a national sport in HK. I once saw a bus driver playing it while he was driving the bus!
