Artist's Description

The Rat is one of the 12 Animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac. In the foreground is the Chinese character for the Rat.

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 9×12″ regular-surface bristol paper. Copyright 2009 Stephanie Smith, contact me for re-use and customization!

This image is also available as cards with the text ‘Year of the Rat’ and without the text and as T-shirts.
