 I know it may seem a bit early for many of you, but it's already well past midnight in Japan (and I think more than a few of you are in Singapore, who also already past midnight, right?). So Studio Ghibli offers you this welcome to 2010, the Year of the Tiger. And oh my god it's adorable-- and drawn by Hayao Miyazaki himself!
There'll be a lot more of these illustrations; I'll try to collect the best ones and post 'em later...if I have time! For now, though: how many of you guys are year of the Tiger for your Chinese zodiac? I'm a Rat myself...

 Miyazaki-sensei just has that touch, doesn't he? That is so adorable! 
 
I am born under the sign of the Rat as well 

 
From chinesezodiac.com: 
 
"Occupying the 1st and most prominent position on the Chinese Zodiac, the Rat symbolizes such character traits as wit, imagination and curiosity. Rats have keen observation skills and with those skills they’re able to deduce much about other people and other situations. Overall, Rats are full of energy, talkative and charming but they have a tendency to become aggressive.

 Rats are full of good advice but they will never share their troubles with others. They are honest individuals and they enjoy living for the moment. They’re also capable of surviving any situation.  "
