Year of the Tiger by Stephanie Smith (for dark shirts) by 

Year of the Tiger is one of the 12 Animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac. In the background is the Chinese character for the Tiger.

This design is optimized for the dark color shirts, if you want a light colored shirt or a sticker try this version instead.

Tiger people are said to charismatic, dynamic, and passionate. You are probably a Tiger if you were born in 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950, 1938, or 1926, 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 and Pigma Microns on 11×14″ bristol paper with digital color. Copyright 2009 Stephanie Smith, contact me for re-use and customization!
