star wars_postcards_by_al_lau

Since Disney acquired the franchise, the Star Wars story and characters took an interesting direction. Do you like how episode 7 (The Force Awakens) and episode 8 (The Last Jedi) have turned out?

The part I do enjoy is how they breathed new life for a whole new generation and we old school fans get to experience the nostalgia we had as kids. Those opening credits gets me every time. And John Williams’ musical score still gives me tingles.

I created fan art postcards in celebration of Star Wars. The set of 4 cartoon drawings are now available at my store.

May the force be with you!

It is a lazy Sunday for me and my cats. My cat, Pepper, laid still for 5 minutes. Just long enough for me to do a quick sketch.

My cartoon celebrates the classic scene from the original Star Wars trilogy. It also honors the old but wise Yoda. I remember as a kid learning how powerful this short wrinkly creature was. It is totally shocking. Right? Yoda is also the perfect representation the idea in Asian culture to respect your elders. In many ways, he is ultimate hero of the galaxy.

By the way, a movie called Solo: A Star Wars is out this weekend. Which is your favorite film out of all of the Star Wars franchise so far?

I know the big news is the Royal Wedding. Did you wake up at the crack of dawn to watch it?

In other European news, the French Open begins soon. My drawing is a player doing an overhead smash. That is the best move to counter an opponent’s lob. Smack!

Can you live in a Big Tiny House?

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!

The whole concept of downsizing and having a smaller footprint on this beautiful planet intrigues a growing population of homeowners. Not to mention, a life without a 30-year mortgage sounds likes music to our ears. Right?

I made my Tiny House drawings into postcards. If you like collecting postcards or simply love tiny houses, check them out at my tiny store  at designosaurus.etsy.com.

Happy Earth Day everybody!
