Chinese Zodiac - Year of the Rat

Stephanie Smith

Lutherville, United States

Artist's Description

The Rat is part of series of the 12 Animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac. In the foreground is the Chinese character for the Rat.
SEE ALSO: Alternate version for dark-colored shirts
Rat people are said to be clever, meticulous, and charming.
You are probably a Rat if you were born in 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960, 1948, 1936, or 1924, 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!
This image is also available in black and white in full color cards and wall art and as T-shirts.
