First day back from Costa Rica. Woke up to a snow storm, went to work. Unpacking, repacking. Wishing I was still beneath the Pacific waves. 
Year of the Monkey by RoseCarballeira
Year of the Monkey
Last year, my Chinese Zodiac drawing (Year of the Goat)was such a struggle bus. I loved the results, but it was a super intense and frustrating process.

This year has been the opposite. Everything about this drawing flowed so naturally. Maybe it's because Monkey imagery in mythologies is just so damn interesting and fun to draw. I pulled heavily from Eastern imagery this time, especially from Bali. And I drew a male! So much new stuff is happening!

2016's Year of the Monkey is clever and playful, but also aggressive and reckless like its element, Fire.

Sagittarius by RoseCarballeira
Sagittarius
"If the point is sharp and the arrow is swift
It can pierce through the darkness, no matter how thick."
-Bob Dylan


My submission for the Zodiac Contest over at :iconartnouveau:

I chose Sagittarius for the simple reason that I am one and it was an opportunity to explore my sign. Instead of depicting the usual centaur, I decided to focus on the element of the archer and give her more of an Artemis quality. I think she still embodies the spirit of the centaur: feral, but wise.

I learned that Sag is very much a fighter. We continue to give even when we feel drained, continue to love even when we feel alone.

Artistically I was inspired by Mucha's "Seasons." I love the flatness and earthiness of the backgrounds and the way the figure fills the frame :heart:
