Nice as they are, if you’re fed up of “traditional” red themed Chinese New Year calendars and the like, get yourself a decent 2010 Chinese New Year print to celebrate the Year of the Tiger by British Chinese illustrator Jonny Wan.
Following his work for a few months now, we find his vector texture style unique and fresh. You can buy the 2010 Year of the Tiger print at Society6 and check out more of Jonny Wan’s work at his website.
