Product Overview

Rollo Banks' "Year of the Rabbit" Design, originally from 1987.

Michael Malone, better known by his nom de ink Rollo Banks, was a brilliant iconoclast and renowned tattoo artist whose mastery of the form earned international acclaim. As the Austin Chronicle’s erstwhile cover guru, Banks created the Chinese New Year series, which appeared annually from 1986 through 1997. The Chronicle is proud to make this collection available to readers as a wearable tribute to our late friend, the inimitable Rollo Banks.

In the Chinese zodiac, the Year of the Rabbit, symbolizing longevity, peace, and prosperity, begins Jan. 22 and celebrations continue through Feb. 5. The Chronicle offers a selection of Year of the Rabbit merchandise designed by Rollo Banks.
