In the Year of the Dragon, The Mills in collaboration with local illustrator THE WEIRD THINGS, presents the “The Mills Daily Life of THE WEIRD DRAGON” New Year project from January 29th to February 25th, 2024. Breaking away from the traditional image of dragons, the concept of THE WEIRD DRAGON has emerged, showing that dragons can also be gentle. A series of heartwarming artwork will be created and displayed in various corners of The Mills, with a must-visit spot being the giant peach blossom tree adorned illustrations and New Year decorations. This initiative invites everyone to celebrate the Lunar New Year while reminding people to be kind to themselves and embrace every aspect of themselves. Additionally, The Mills give out “The Mills x THE WEIRD THINGS red packets” to spread New Year blessings. New Year workshops and special offers are provided to visitors for a comprehensive mind and body experience.
Local illustrator THE WEIRD THINGS took inspiration from the concept of “embracing oneself” to design the festive decorations of THE WEIRD DRAGON for the Lunar New Year.
THE WEIRD THINGS embraces its unique and adorable creative style and has designed THE WEIRD DRAGON for this New Year project. Unlike the fierce image typically associated with dragons, THE WEIRD DRAGON has a soft and tender heart. It loves hugging itself and enjoys hugging people and things around it. The illustrator hopes that everyone can be like THE WEIRD DRAGON, recognizing that even the toughest-looking dragons have a warm and gentle side. This serves as a reminder to not always put on a strong front but to learn to take good care of oneself.
During the Lunar New Year period, The Mills will be filled with a warm and adorable atmosphere with THE WEIRD DRAGON decorations. There will be a giant 4.5-meter-tall peach blossom tree, adorned with a series of THE WEIRD DRAGON illustrations and New Year greetings. The area around the peach blossom tree will also be surrounded by THE WEIRD FRIENDS, welcoming everyone to come and take photos with their friends or furry companions. We hope that everyone can share happiness with their family and friends while bringing out the best version of themselves this year.
