Summer is almost over but fishing is still hot, and so is the weather. After a recent rainstorm, I test out the Berkley Gulp Alive Jigging Grubs to see if it can catch Bluegill in dark dirty water. Plus, let’s watch two kinds of fireworks, from the brilliance of 4th of July to the natural glow of Fireflies at dusk.

Let just have fun doing simple canoe fishing at a remote lake, and escape the noisy city. We can do relaxing fishing for bass and enjoy the sounds of nature, from frogs croaking to birds singing. Plus, there are cute baby foxes in my backyard! My cat likes to watch them too. Check out my latest video.

Here is a special posting for New Years, a vlog from my turtle! Sometimes, my pet turtle feels adventurous and wants out of her aquarium. In this video, my big turtle decides to go for a walk around the house, to explore. During her walk, she encounters herself, at a mirror, and the cats! Enjoy :)

drawing: my cat mochi

September 30, 2021

It’s a lazy day at the cabin. The autumn leaves are starting to change here in the Upstate New York mountains. A bit too chilly to go paddling because of a cold front. So I am bonding with my cat, Mochi, and doing a little drawing of her. I have to say that it is nice to get back to my artwork.

If you would like to see my drawings, please feel free to check out my shop at www.designosaurus.etsy.com

Have a nice early fall day!

When it is near the time to refresh the aquarium water, one of the favorite routines for my pet turtles is when I give them a feast of different foods. It’s like a buffet for the turtles including pellets, superworms, lettuce and nightcrawlers. For changing the water afterwards, I use a rounded water basin which is perfect for emptying the tank. That is, if you don’t have a siphoning set up.

My cat joins in on the action, and helps me care for the turtles too!
Check out fun turtle (and cat) my video!

sketch: canada goose

April 4, 2020

goose_by_al_lau

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.

 

turtle_on_log_by_al_lau

My Red Eared Turtle is enjoying life by basking on a log, under the sun. All by itself. A kind of “social distancing”, shall I say? On that note, be safe everybody. We will pull through this tough time. My job has closed down for 2 weeks. So I am home, trying to lift my spirits by drawing, and keeping busy. I also plan to go outside and take in the warm sun, just like my turtle!

What are you doing to stay positive? Let me know :)

st croix travel rod

In my latest Outdoor & Nature video, I test out the strength of a 2-piece travel rod by St. Croix brand. Just to let you know, a 2-piece fishing rod is good for portability, but it is not normally as strong as a 1-piece. I get to see if it can handle aggressive fish from Sunfish to Bass to the powerful Northern Pike!

When I launch my Canoe at a river, it is usually uneventful. But suddenly, I find myself surrounded by thousands of Blackbirds. So in the spirit of Halloween, here is my video. Don’t be too scared. Blackbirds are harmless. Or are they?!

Happy Halloween y’all!

Nevermind about The Avengers Infinity War. Who will win this epic battle? The snail or the Hermit Crab?

On the note of bottom feeders, I came across the smallest crab in the world while I was trying to catch (and release) a Largemouth Bass, featured in my recent video, First Bass of the Year. Plus, my cat makes a short cameo. Let me know if you like. Thanks!
