Happy Lunar New Year!
This year is the year of the snake.
One of my coworkers asked me about the year of the snake. Many of the people I know seem to have a bad impression of the snake, which seems to come from the Christian association of the snake with the devil. I thought that was a little sad – while I’m not a huge fan of snakes myself, I wanted to show the cool mythological side of them. So for this year’s image, I drew on the creator story of Nüwa and the idea of the snake as a benevolent female deity.
Also my version wears a moon egg crown.
Happy year of the snake! I’ve got a much better feeling about this year than the last 😀
