Happy New Year! Above is my design for this year’s new year’s card (nengajo, 年賀状). In Japan, January 1 marks the start of the next animal in the Chinese zodiac, and it’s a tradition to send out New Year’s postcards with the year’s zodiac animal on it. This is the Year of the Wood Horse, which marks a year of progressing in leaps. I hope everyone’s year has galloped off to a great start!
