drawing dragons

I've been alternating my furious work on STARRY RIVER with school visits. One of my favorite things  to do at my visits is the "draw-a-long," where I teach the students how to draw either a dog (from Year of the Dog) or a Chinese New Year decoration. It's always a lot of fun  and these past years, I've gotten good at showing students how to draw tigers and rabbits. However, with this year being the Year of the Dragon I was a little worried that a dragon drawing might be a bit much.

But it's been working out great! Don't these look like lucky dragons?

 Well, I feel lucky!
