Hi there, how are you?
The first day of Chinese New Year began on 5th February. Fun fact: usually it is held on the new moon that appears between 21 January and 20 February. Each year it is symbolised by an animal; this year 2019 is the year of the pig.
I think the Chinese pig is supposed to be a boar but I decided to draw pink farm pigs..
These two little piggy’s were drawn separately on a page. For some reason I had drawn both pigs sitting down and as I looked at the images in the computer I thought they looked like they belonged together on the bank so I took the white background off and sat one pig behind the other, like two friends sitting on the grass.
Here’s another little pink piggy out for a walk.
My favourite of all the pigs is the one at the top of the post. She’s a red river hog (the male hogs have small tusks) and we regularly see them at the zoo.
A few years they were a couple of happy hogs enjoying the quiet life, now they have developed into quite the family with two piglets in 2017 and three last year. They’re obviously very happy river hogs.
I love red river hogs ears so much; they start out as pointed elf like ears and the older they get the longer the hairs on the ears grow, amazing!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. Till next time, have fun x
