Chinese Zodiac Chinese character greeting cards creation

by Chien-Fu Lai

Although the Internet makes communication more real-time, it also sacrifices the ritual sense of sending blessings and the depth of warmth conveyed by writing. The year 2009 is the year of my birth, the year of the ox. In this year, I began to create Chinese character greeting cards with the theme of 12 Chinese zodiac. After 12 years, I created a reincarnation, which combines traditional Chinese calligraphy with English font, integrates artistic conception, strings into homophony, and breaks through the form. I strive to make my friends receive an interesting homemade New Year card that can make them smile at the beginning of spring. Every word on the card for 12 years, once written, has embarked on the journey of blessing.
