Year of the Rabbit by Stephanie Smith by 

Year of the Rabbit is part a series of the 12 Animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac. In the background is the Chinese character for the Rabbit.

This version is optimized for light colored clothing and stickers; if you want a darker-colored shirt try this version instead.

Those born in the Year of the Rabbit are said to be gracious, cultured, intellectual, and detail-oriented. They may be very sensitive — sometimes to the point of nervousness — but this also makes them compassionate and attentive to those around them, and they like to make their homes comfortable and peaceful.

You are probably a Rabbit if you were born in 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951, 1939, or 1927, but double-check the exact dates if your birthday is in mid-January to mid-February because the Lunar New Year is on a different date each year. Wikipedia’s Chinese Zodiac page is a good starting point for more information about all of the signs and their meanings.

Drawn with a brush-pen on 11×14″ bristol paper with digital color. Copyright 2009 Stephanie Smith, contact me for re-use and customization!

  • Thank you! I’ll have the rest of them soon… only two left to draw in ink, the rest just need to be colored… assuming my little computer holds out until they’re all done! ;)
