The lunar new year set was originally revealed back in feb of this year 2022. Design-wise I went down memory lane a bit for these as I tried to incorporate a bunch of semi-traditions from how I celebrate the lunar new year with bts song concepts!
House of Cards: Cards is a game that my family often plays when we get together (usually was chinese poker, but more recently mahjong), so I have lots of fond memories (but also I have been meaning to do a house of cards design for AGES)
Young Forever: The creation + hanging of red lanterns also symbolized good luck & prosperity is another thing that I remember doing (that + lots of food haha) this was my redesign of the young forever hot air balloon (or in this case a lantern!) wanted to explore a bit with the yf motif but with a twist!
Autumn Leaves: the ginkgo leaves I chose as symbolism instead of my family traditions & wish you guys lots of peace, hope & vitality as we enter the new year! 🐯 (though you can also argue that leaves are indeed still dead in winter so that matches the song at least LOL)
