It’s the year of the pig according to the Chinese horoscope. Scouring through the many illustrations I’ve created over the years, I found a pig I drew back in 2011. This image has nothing to do with the Chinese zodiac, and everything to do with the figure of speech, “when pigs fly”. The implication of such a phrase is that the circumstances in question will never occur.
Built in Adobe Illustrator, my piggy pilot is ready for lift off! Happy Chinese New Year! And please keep me in mind the next time you need a pig illustration. – Joe Gast
