Year of the Horse... 2014! illustration for Chinese New Year...

Year of the Horse - illustration © Nicola L Robinson 2014
This Friday will be Chinese New Year, we leave the year of the Snake behind and bring in the Year of the Horse! I've always loved the chinese zodiac- and for the last couple of years have been doing an illustration to mark the event.

This is my interpretation and this year I've included all of the animals, roughly in order, all bringing in the year of the horse (Horse is no relation to robocop...) the snake slithers off into the desert, and the crafty little goats climb up inside the horse- Trojan style ready for their year next time...

Here are some details of the animals- enlarged so you can see them all! (some of them are really tiny)

Rat
Ox
Tiger
Rabbit
Dragon
Snake
Goat
Monkey
Rooster
