I did a cartoon drawing for my friend’s birthday. He is from Britain and loves the Vespa scooter. One day, he wants to get the classic scooter. But for now, I hope he likes my card drawing.

I recently went on a camping trip to the Adirondacks. Car camping, that is. Access to a real bathroom is one luxury I can’t do without. Anyway, I couldn’t help but notice a cute tiny trailer in a nearby site. It is called the Casita. It is small but is complete with a bed, air conditioning and propane stove. Talk about luxury :)  So… I had to draw it!

I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting art as often as I used to. The reason is I have been dedicating more time to my video channel. Creating content and editing the footage takes a lot of time. And so my artwork has suffered I guess. But then again, making video is a form of being creative too. Right? So I figured why not add it to my blog website.

Both my artwork and my videos mostly fall under a common theme – the Outdoors and Nature. I want to officially introduce my videos on a more regular basis. Without further ado, below is a video I made about Camping and Canoeing in the Adirondacks. It features a glimpse of what camping is like near the popular Northern Forest Canoe Trail and includes the Casita trailer that I saw. Please feel free to Subscribe & Like it if you think I did a good job (fingers crossed). Happy Fall everybody!

The US Open Men’s and Women’s finals are on this weekend. Who do you want to win the tournament?

My drawing is of a player, staying low, to perform a forehand return. Much like Osaka’s brilliant technique which she used to beat Madison Keys in the semi-final. This was a fun sketch to do because of the simplicity and flowing lines to capture the human form in action.

I was on vacation, waiting for my flight at Midway airport in Chicago, and I see a WWII fighter plane hanging from the ceiling of the terminal. It’s a perfect time to draw something different :)

I hope everybody is having a great summer and fun travels!

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!

snail_vs_hermit_by_al_lau

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!
