Chinese Zodiac Animals

 



This gallery contains my original series of Chinese Zodiac animals, drawn in my unique colorful style.  This series, starting with the rat, contains twelve animals.  In the Chinese Zodiac, the year one is born is assigned an animal, with that particular animal imparting several characteristics such as personality, ideal partner, success and wealth.  It is a 12 year repeating cycle. Each animal also has a secondary element: fire, water, earth, metal and wood, which brings the cycle to 60 years.  In addition to the yearly animal sign, animals are also assigned to the months, days and hours.  Learn about each zodiac animal by clicking on the image above.
