Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the Year of the Monkey: the most fun CNY animal to draw. So here are some happy Dim-Sum-eating monkeys to celebrate it. I’ve printed them out as little concertina folding cards, and I’ve sent them out to clients all over the world!

They’re all painted in watercolour and gouache, and based on a lot of monkey sketches that I made from seeing macaques in Hong Kong last year- I’ve put some of those sketches below.

And lastly, most importantly, here’s an actual photo of me with my monkey friends.
