Chinese Dragons

As it is almost Chinese New Year, I was reminded of some illustrations
I worked on last year for The Educational Company of Ireland.
I had to illustrate the Chinese Folk Tale 'Four Rivers', which
meant I got to draw lots of Chinese Dragons!!

 It's the story of how China got its four great rivers -
from the Yellow Dragon, the Black Dragon, the Pearl Dragon
and the Long Dragon!!

 I'd never drawn Chinese dragons before, but really
loved drawing them...and I intend to draw some more soon!

Here are some more images from the story...

  1. Illustrating Chinese Folk Tales would be fun! So many gorgeous patterns to play with. Look forward to seeing more of your dragons Mary. : )
