Happy Tiger Year!

I'm honored to be in this group show celebrating the wonderful new year at Giant Robot in LA. (Also cats and dogs adoption at the opening!)

Yeah, it's the Chinese New Year, and it has been celebrating in many countries around the world since last weekend. With family, great food and drinks, friends and happy times, usually the new year holiday runs about 10 days. I remember Chinese New Year was my favorite holiday when I was little, because all the kids get a lot of candies, treats and red envelopes from elder family members! (usually big cash, enough to spend for comics, snacks and toys all year long!)
Holidays never go wrong with food and treats. The piece I made for this show is called: The Dumpling Cub.
The little cub is sitting in the bamboo steamer as one of the dumplings, can't wait to get out!

I designed and made the frame to give it an vintage look.

I hope you enjoy the birth of the chubby meaty tiger cub, sitting in the plum flowers blossom winter/spring. 生龍(蒸籠)活虎. Happy New Year!
