New Year, New Rice


Digital cartoon of rice bag with a drawing of a smiling rat harvesting rice, surrounded by food & “New Year, New Rice” in big yellow letters.

Inspired by my dad's stories about mice in the rice fields of Vietnam, I wanted to draw a rice-gathering rat plastered on a rice bag similar to ones that constantly sat in my family's pantry. The surrounding elements were inspired by Vietnamese new year elements, from the food to the red envelopes. The sparkles were an extra pinch of fun.
