Year of the Tiger Ornament


2022 Limited Series of 375 Clemson ornaments
7th Limited Series Clemson design

Back in 2015, I never had in mind to start an annual ornament design- I just had an idea to celebrate the big victory over Notre Dame in the hurricane rain, and troll a saying that a CBS sportscaster made about the Tigers. I painted 100 of “Lugubrious Clemson Fans”- and in the process, discovered a following for a unique Clemson ornament design!

Seven years, and 6 designs later, I’m proud to present the newest edition. “The Year of the Tiger” was inspired by the tiger being the 2022 Chinese New Year animal. A suggestion of a tiger walking through the jungle got my creativity going. When I think about the world the past several years, as we’ve “roared” into the twenties decade, indeed it feels like a jungle out there. So the jungle depicts that craziness, but the tiger striding forward represents my belief that brighter days are ahead.

I really have enjoyed bringing this design to life with the tropical foliage, the Jungle Book-esque calligraphy and the walking tiger. Hope you will enjoy giving this to your favorite Clemson fan, and adding it to your collection.
