Happy Year of the Dragon!!!!


Welcome to the New Year of the Dragon! Here’s another recent paper cut to celebrate this auspicious event. Here my character Daniel plays with fire works and is blown over by the terrific bang. 


Another of my Daniel characters rides on the Dragon. He holds a string of firecrackers in his hand, but he’s not really aware how dangerous this really is.  Behind the dragon water pours and flows and rain falls from the sky – This is after all the Year of the Water Dragon.


My cockroach characters are in danger of being washed away by the water, so they’re trying to escape by clinging to a rocket as it shoots skywards.  Are the cockroaches aware that the rocket will explode? Who knows? Cockroaches do have the knack of surviving just about anywhere.



This paper cut along with many others of mine is currently on display at the Suho Paper museum in Taipei. More on that next time!

Greetings, really like the bipolarity of just two colors. Was thinking of making a quilt in red and white...typically I use every color I can get my hands on...It is an amazing, auspicious, engaging dragon!
