Wonderful portrayal! May I please use your wonderful artwork to teach my students about the Chinese zodiacs and how to recognize and write the Chinese characters for these animals? My students have zero background in Chinese and I think they can greatly benefit from your visuals. Please let me know. I will definitely give you the credit and hyperlink my lesson materials to this address. 

Thank you kindly in advance for creating such a wonderful piece! I hope you'll create more! Perhaps do a tutorial?

No. if you were born in 1999 like my brother, you're Dragon.

1994 was dog and 1995 was pig.
