The Chinese New Year officially kicked off on February 8. 2016 is year of the red fire monkey. If that doesn't beg a graphic...
Midway through my first comp and rendering, I realized that my "monkey" did not have a tail. After more research, surfing on google and Pinterest. I found that yes, chimpanzees are part of the ape family and are not monkeys; and went back to the drawing board, literally and modeled my graphic after a macaque monkey. Flare include traditional (red) cloud
and some fender spoilers for flames. Voilå, a new year's card in two variations: white background and the yellow with brocade. The front and the kanji are cut out. The design is in trifold with a greeting on the inside panel. Happy newest year.
