While fishing, I come across an odd sight. Did you know squirrels can swim? My video features me trying to catch a big Northern Pike, and seeing a family of cute baby skunks up close :)  Check it out and enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

video: tiny river monster

October 20, 2018

I did a short video which has a touch of Halloween in it, called Tiny River Monster: Red Breast Sunfish. It is my little spoof on the series that appears on Nat Geo. (My video even includes an instrumental song I composed which seems to fit perfectly to the scary theme.) Happy Halloween!

I did a cartoon drawing for my friend’s birthday. He is from Britain and loves the Vespa scooter. One day, he wants to get the classic scooter. But for now, I hope he likes my card drawing.

I recently went on a camping trip to the Adirondacks. Car camping, that is. Access to a real bathroom is one luxury I can’t do without. Anyway, I couldn’t help but notice a cute tiny trailer in a nearby site. It is called the Casita. It is small but is complete with a bed, air conditioning and propane stove. Talk about luxury :)  So… I had to draw it!

I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting art as often as I used to. The reason is I have been dedicating more time to my video channel. Creating content and editing the footage takes a lot of time. And so my artwork has suffered I guess. But then again, making video is a form of being creative too. Right? So I figured why not add it to my blog website.

Both my artwork and my videos mostly fall under a common theme – the Outdoors and Nature. I want to officially introduce my videos on a more regular basis. Without further ado, below is a video I made about Camping and Canoeing in the Adirondacks. It features a glimpse of what camping is like near the popular Northern Forest Canoe Trail and includes the Casita trailer that I saw. Please feel free to Subscribe & Like it if you think I did a good job (fingers crossed). Happy Fall everybody!

forehand_return_by_al_lau

The US Open Men’s and Women’s finals are on this weekend. Who do you want to win the tournament?

My drawing is of a player, staying low, to perform a forehand return. Much like Osaka’s brilliant technique which she used to beat Madison Keys in the semi-final. This was a fun sketch to do because of the simplicity and flowing lines to capture the human form in action.

I was on vacation, waiting for my flight at Midway airport in Chicago, and I see a WWII fighter plane hanging from the ceiling of the terminal. It’s a perfect time to draw something different :)

I hope everybody is having a great summer and fun travels!
