Happy Chinese New Year!

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:CNY screen

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! CNY-screen-with-animation
