hemispheres: zodiac race

the chinese zodiac is based on a ancient myth that the entire animal kingdom raced across a river, with the 12 winning animals included and creating the order in the zodiac calendar. artist duke riley recently re-raced the 12 winners which yielding a slightly different order. the illustration i created is not a visualization, but a completely faithful recreation of this event.
