This is the eleventh year I've made a print of the Chinese zodiac animal for an excange sponsored by the Baren Forum group. The Chinese NY began on January 23 and I mailed them on that day, so they are probably getting to the 45 people that I sent to about now. Here is my print.
This is a cloisonne matchbook holder which I used for reference. I used 2 blocks of shina plywood and printed each reductively.... the first printed with yellow, blue and black in that order and the second printed with light red and red. I used 3 different papers.... this one is Rives BFK. As usual, I used hanga technique using waterbased paint and methyl cellulose and printed with a baren.
