During the state lockdown, I let my pet turtles out of their aquarium to have a nice meal. I also take them outside to get fresh air and natural sunlight.

Check out my video to get your mind off of things right now :)Β  Enjoy!

I’m feeling crabbie today. Perhaps from being indoors for so long. But it gives me the chance to do drawings :)

The Blue Crab, a regional seafood delicacy, is commonly found in the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. In my artwork, I depict the crab as energetic and alive, reaching out for possible food to float by in the strong currents under the sea.

My print is available online. Check it out at my store.

Happy Earth Day and Happy weekend all!

gopro hero 8 test review

Ever wonder how surfers, snowboarders or sky divers capture amazing close-up footage of their stunts? Well, they can’t carry a heavy DSLR camera while they are doing tricks. Enter the little camera, GoPro Hero 8 Black (boy, that’s a mouthful for a small device), that packs a punch. It is so small that it can be attached to a helmet or a chest harness.

In my video, I try out the cam while riding a bicycle, attaching it to the handlebars and then a selfie stick. I test out its features and HD video quality. The image stabilization is simply amazing, considering how much shaking is going on while I am cycling. Check out my video review!

Please note: I feature wildlife shots, such as birds, in the video which were not taken with the GoPro but rather with my Panasonic camcorder, which has a strong zoom lens.

I hope to do more gear review videos in the future. Let me know if you think I did a good job :)

What would you use the GoPro cam for?

The following gear I used in this video:
GoPro Hero8 Black
Smatree Selfie Telescoping Stick with Tripod
Smatree GoPro Base Adapter
Maxcam Tempered Glass Screen Protector
Sony RX100 20.2 MP Digital Camera w/ 1-inch sensor
Panasonic HC-V800

sketch: canada goose

April 4, 2020

Today, I draw an exciting subject, a Canadian Goose! Okay. I’m kinda joking. We see these geese every day that we are bored of seeing them. Am I right? Canada geese are so prolific, it is easy to find a model for my drawing. Question: Why do we call them Canada Geese if they are too lazy to fly back to Canada anymore?

The plus side of staying at home is having more time to be creative. For me, it is creating videos and doing drawings.

I feel like I tend to be too rigid in my art. So I wanted to challenge myself to be more loose with this sketch. And that makes it so much more fun and freeing! That is exactly what we need at this time, to be able to not over-do it and liberate ourselves from the stress :)

Thank you Mr Goose for making oblong shapes so fun to draw.
