The Year of the Dragon is one of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac, and is holding the Chinese symbol for Dragon.
Dragon people are said to be self-assured, passionate, and ambitious. You are probably a Dragon if you were born in 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, 1952, 1940, or 1928, 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.
The Year of the Dragon was drawn with a Pitt Brush pen and Pigma Microns on 100lb smooth finish bristol board, 11×14 inches, and then colored digitally. Copyright 2009 Stephanie Smith, contact me for re-use and customization!
