The Chinese Year of The Rat

On February the 7th (so one week ago) the Chinese celebrated their New Year 2008. The Chinese calendar is based on an astronomical system and regulated by the moon phases, which causes that the New Year starts on a different day each year (so no wonder I missed the right date :)
I don't wanna talk about the calendar system (just look at wikipedia if you are interested in it), but about the fact that the New Year 2008 is the year of the rat! Yeah! So after my last year's efforts to draw mean, ugly and mutated rats I thought it was time for some serious rat sketches to please the great Chinese Rat God :P...

Happy New Year!
