Chinese New Year 2017: Fire Rooster

Year of the Rooster illustration by Naomi Hoang

Hi everyone!

2017 will be the Year of the Rooster in the Chinese zodiac. This is the third year running where I've designed and printed giftcards to sell online. It started as a side-project, where I intended to send them to friends and family as 'thank you' cards. After the surplus sold-out on eBay, I tried to be more purposeful last year and ordered more.

I'm selling on Etsy as well as eBay, though the latter is far more popular/accessible, so I've moved most of the stock there.

This year's rooster has a fire element attached to it, though I misread this before and thought it was the year of the metal the ornamental piece it's standing on was originally meant to be made of bronze. Oops! I quite liked the design as it was, so instead of changing it, I painted the gladiola flowers red and an orange background to indicate fire instead. Overall, the suggestion is more subtle this year and, quite rarely, I'm actually happy with it!

Many thanks to those of you who have purchased a card (or a few!) already. :) These are available at Ha Long Mini Mart and will be on sale at Midlands Buddhist Association next week. As you can see, I've snuck in some advertising for my business, NAOHOA, too. :P

These are a LIMITED EDITION print (only 80 available for sale) that come with signed notes when ordered online. Chinese New Year is on Saturday 28th January. To ensure you get your card in time (via Royal Mail 2nd Class), please purchase by Tuesday 24th.

Thanks again and Happy New Year!
