It’s the peak of summer and what a great time to get outdoors, albeit rather humid lately. I like to cool off by going on the water to do canoeing. Today, I use a strange moving lure called a Scatter Rap by Rapala. Instead of wiggling like a fish, this lure wobbles. If you stop and jerk the retrieve, it actually darts around and gives a different look to predatory fish. Check out my short video of a couple of big bass that I catch and release.

Plus, my cat, Mochi, makes a cameo in the video, where she has a staring contest with a deer, just outside our window, not once… but twice!

drawing: camping

June 16, 2019

camping_by_al_lau

I did a cartoon drawing of camping for my friend’s birthday card. We used to camp together in great locations such as Cape Cod and Cape May. Unfortunately, he moved away which makes it more difficult to plan a trip. But alas, I still love to go camping. My most recent camping trip is to upstate New York. I have the chance to cook on the portable stove, tour a small town, do some canoe fishing and simply breathe the fresh air. If you like the outdoors and camping, check out my short video .  What is your favorite thing to do when camping? Let me know :)

My cat, Mochi is always on high alert. She is startled by the slightest sound. She posed for my portrait drawing while she stared at birds outside the window. And as you can see, she has the biggest eyes.

Yes, I named my cat after the delicious Japanese ice cream dessert :)

To be a cat means having a good life. People love them. People take care of them. In some cultures, people worship them. And my cat is no exception.  I did a sketch of my cat sleeping, enjoying her good life. Even when asleep, cats twitch and shuffle around, which forces me to sketch quickly. But that is a good exercise in creating a loose free-flowing line in tight time constraints.

I made a short video, showing a new tackle box that is simple and can hold a lot of fishing lures. Plus, my cats choose a lure for me to use to catch Bluegill.

Enjoy. Thanks for watching!

In case you didn’t know… I enjoy fishing and drawing. I felt it was about time to combine my two pleasures in my cartoon. My characters, who love fresh sushi, go on a boat to catch the big one. To their surprise, they reel in something much bigger than they expected.

Happy New Years everybody!
