The image below is my rendition of “的”, the most common Chinese character, per this site. More on what I’m doing for #inktober2017 later, but check out Inktober for more details. I’m ‘drawing’ hanzi.

“的” is the most commonly used hanzi and it’s most common use is as a possessive particle. Here’s a direct transliteration. Each English word corresponds to one hanzi (charachter)

  • 這是我{的}書
  • This is I {possessive} book

So, “This is my book”.
