To celebrate 2021, which is the Chinese zodiac year of the ox, I decided to paint some unicows. The first unicow I made in 2018 delighted me, but I wanted to find a way to do rainbow stripes instead of splotches, so for Year of the Rainbow Unicow I looked to zebras to see how their markings move over their faces.

You can watch the making of Year of the Rainbow Unicow.
