You can still send in your artwork until 21th of January. I hope you will all join the gallery of dragons. In the mean time in China a new stamp is launched with...a dragon on it! The Chinese stamp is especially made for the year of the dragon. Unfortunately it causes a lot of commotion. People in China think the dragon should be an adorable mascot but they say this design is frightful and sends out a wrong message. This dragon seems to have the intention to frighten people.
The designer Chen Shaohua defends his work, saying: "Dragons drive out evil spirits and keep off disasters. We need a tough image to express these qualities." For more info:
I hope we will have a nice mix of fierce, scary, funny, lovable dragons in the gallery!
