Chinese New Year

Vector, Flat Design

I try to make a design for the Chinese/Lunar new year every year. 2018 is the year of the dog so I wanted to incorporate that in my work somehow.

I ended up keeping it pretty simple in the end with bunch of stagnant objects surrounding the one piece that I wanted the viewer to hone in on, the dog and lion.

I wanted to use a rich color palette to compliment the festival history while also maintaining a softness to the overall composition. I really enjoyed how the lion came  out. The locked gaze between the lion and dog really brought together a rather mundane piece.
