2012 Chinese Zodiac Stamps (Student Work)

Derrick Lin


Designed by Ryan Bosse, a student at Fort Hays University, Kansas, USA.

This edition of US Postage Stamps is to celebrate an ancient Chinese tradition of the Zodiac. These stamps are to convey a more contemporary style and story to an younger American audience that may not be as familiar with the traditions of ancient China.

The illustrations incorporate the animals for the next four years and the elements that deal with their stories of how they became the Zodiac.
