Announcing the Top 10 Year of the Monkey Designs!

JAN 28, 2016

The Monkey is the 9th of 12 animals in the recurring 12-year Chinese zodiac cycle. 2016 is the year of the Fire Monkey, which occurs once every fifty years! Anyone born in this year (or back in 1956) is said to be highly adventurous and ambitious.

Let's give a big hoot and howl for this week's winner Vo_aka_virginiao (on her 2nd win in a row!) with her design, "Fruitful Year of the Monkey," and be sure to congratulate all the top ten winners of the Year of the Monkey Design Challenge!
