This coming Chinese New Year is the year of the tiger. It’s about being bold and adventurous, and taking risks.
So, I’d like to be a little bold and offer you a gift of my own: a downloadable picture of the Chinese character hu (è™Ž), which means tiger. This is an original, hand-drawn piece done by my father-in-law, who enjoys calligraphy in his spare time.
Interested in getting an original? Okay, let’s get even more bold.
I have five originals with the character for tiger, available for readers. All you have to do is be one of the first five people to comment on this post. I will then contact you by e-mail to get your address, and drop it in the mail — wherever you are in the world, free of charge.
A few caveats:
- Be sure to leave a valid e-mail address in your comment, so I can contact you.
- Only comment if you’re willing to provide me with an address. And if you do provide one, make sure it’s valid.
- The characters should arrive within 1 week in North America, and 2-3 weeks elsewhere.
Happy Year of the Tiger!
