It’s 3 a.m.! Have you fed your cats? My cartoon shows how my three cats are not shy about asking for kibble in the wee hours of the morning.

It is too bad American John Isner does not advance to the Men’s final after his epic battle with Anderson yesterday. Isner has the record of the longest game in tennis history, against Mahut at 11 hours and 5 minutes. And now his semi-final match with Anderson is the second longest in major history at 6 hours and 36 minutes. Yikes!

Andy Roddick was the last American to reach the Wimbledon finals when he played against Federer back in 2009. That was an epic battle in itself. It was Isner’s goal to be known more than for his record long matches, and to be the first American since Roddick to reach the Wimbledon finals. I applaud you Isner for almost accomplishing that feat.

This weekend is the Wimbledon finals. Any guesses of who will win this year? Djokovic, Nadal or Anderson? Kerber or Serena Williams?

My fun little drawing is a player preparing to do a running forehand.

It’s that time of year for Wimbledon! Tennis coverage begins at 7am EST Monday July 2 on ESPN.

My drawing is of a lady tennis player getting ready to serve an ace. Tennis is my favorite sport to sketch. Have you noticed?

Happy 4th of July, everybody!

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!
