Zodiacs

Brush pen. For Inktober 2015, I illustrated the full Chinese and Western astrological signs, along with variants and related thematic illustrations. Originally posted on instagram and tumblr with quotes, which you can view here.

In the Chinese shengxiào (“birth likeness”), the series includes:

  • The Cat (Vietnamese replacement for The Rabbit)
  • The Naga (Thai replacement for The Dragon)
  • The Earthly Branches (counting system)
  • The Heavenly Stems (counting system)

In the Western zodiac, the following are three signs frequently touted as potential additions:

  • Ophiuchus the Serpent-Bearer
  • Cetus the Whale
  • Orion the Hunter
