Canada Post has just released the latest in it's Lunar New Year series of stamps. I am honoured to have had the opportunity to work with both Canada Post, and HM&E Design who designed this year's stamp.
Embellished with embossed foil stamping, the rabbit hops from stamp to stamp. The use of gold references "metal" as the element of this Year of the Rabbit.
I was also commissioned to create a second illustration, which was then translated into a beautiful embroidered piece of art, and photographed as imagery for the international stamp.
2011 is the Year of the Rabbit. It begins February 3, 2011, and promises to be a peaceful year.
